Return on Investment
“ROI measures how effectively the
firm uses it’s capital to generate
profit”
•Firm
•Capital

= SHA/Trusts
= £ provided to the UoS
= Improve patient/client
outcome
Principles of ROI
• It provides a means of accounting for the value
of investments in people
• It enable learning and development
professionals to communicate their value more
effectively
• It provides a tool for continuous process and
performance management
• It fixes and extends accountability for investment
in the people of an organisation
Working with commissioners to
demonstrate ROI
Level 4
Level 3
Level 2
Level 1
– what impact are the Trusts looking for
– how can the impact be measured
– how can learning be measured
(positive engagement does not
necessarily mean learning has
occurred)
- knowledge of engagement and
commitment of commissioners to the
development
Working example – Chain of
Impact
Level 4
Need
• to recognise and respond to patient deterioration
in a more timely and effective manner
Objective
• to reduce the number of Serious Untoward
Incidents by 50% in the first year
Level 3
Need
• nurses on all wards and clinical areas (excluding
ITU and theatres) will comply with the NICE CG 50
guidelines
Objectives
• nurses will escalate patient EWS triggers as trust
protocol
• nurses will complete the EWS minimum 12 hourly
per patient in each trust area/ward
Level 2
Need
• deliver education and training in the form of individual
study day and supportive pre and post study event
web based learning material to all nurses
Objectives
• to have a 97% pass rate on the post study event web
based test and 100% at second attempt
• to undertake class based scenarios during the taught
day study event supported by facilitators
Level 1
• develop the content of the day and supporting web
based material and assessment processes with key
trust stakeholders including the LBR Lead/SHA and
education providers within the trust
• 97% of participants recommend this study event to
their peers
• all participants have the knowledge and skill to
perform an ABCDE assessment in 10 minutes
• 100% of participants rate the event as highly relevant
to their role in reducing SUI’s.

Enquiry based learning (EBL)
EBL enables learning to be in context and concentrates on the
skills,
knowledge and understanding required to be a supervisor
in a particular situation
Engel (2001) maintains that EBL assists students to manage
unfamiliar situations, make reasoned decisions, reason
critically, adapt to and participate in change and manage their
own life long learning
13/04/2015 © The University of Sheffield / Department of Marketing and Communications
Five steps for EBL include:
• Triggers developed to enable students achieve the 4 competencies to
become a Supervisor of Midwives as identified in the NMC Standards
• In groups ‘trigger tutorials’ the students:
identify the facts
identify the issues
identify the questions
allocate the questions
• Students search out new knowledge through self study
• Fixed resource sessions, adds to the knowledge
• Student’s present and feedback to the group. Three formative and one
summative assessment

Course Assessment – 3 elements
Element 1 - Seminar presentation (30% weighting)
360˚ assessment, 10% Peer and 20% Academic/LSAMO
Element 2 - Written assignment (70% weighting)
Element 3 - Competence in Practice Assessment (pass/fail)

360˚ Assessment for Trigger feedback
• Academic/LSAMO assessment – Most traditional form of
assessment
• Self assessment – students making judgements about their own
work (presentation and performance). It is a formal part of the
assessment which is structured and includes an action plan to promote
continued development
• Peer assessment – students making decisions on other students
work, highly effective and encourages collaborative learning. They are
excellent predictors of future performance. Names of peers remain
confidential.
• The feedback from all 3 is collated for individual students

Impact outcomes:
• Prepares midwives to achieve professional competence
to undertake the role of the Supervisor of Midwives
•
The public are protected and midwives are supported to
promote good midwifery practice
