QIPP | Detail Aids
Our series of Detail Aids are designed to help you in your QIPP agenda.
Academic detailing is an established method known to change prescribing behaviour. It involves a health care professional or industry representative engaging a prescriber in a one-to-one discussion about a specific therapeutic topic, either for educational or sales purposes.
Our Detail Aids are one-sided documents with a simple layout of four colour text boxes.
Each document tackles one topic, providing expenditure data and potential disinvestment savings, cost comparisons, background evidence, and 3 or 4 key message points. They are produced according to clear writing guidelines and utilise evidence-based resources; the major sources are cited in the document. Support documents are produced in parallel with the detail aids to provide background information for healthcare professionals presenting the aids. These are available on request from email@example.com.
They can be used as a starting point to aid discussions with prescribers in implementing the QIPP agenda. They have also been used in group or practice meetings, as posters or simply distributed to appropriate healthcare professionals.
Locally customisable versions of the Detail Aids are also available on request from firstname.lastname@example.org.
