Our Approach: “Pathways to Recovery”
Our approach, developed by the team on Naomi Unit, uses a recovery focused pathway model made up of three stages:
- Medical stabilisation - the focus of this stage is on restoration of physical health.
- Gaining skills - the focus of this stage is to understand the patient’s problems and develop new skills that aid recovery. Therapy sessions, groups and other individual interventions will help the patient to achieve this.
- Transferring skills - The focus of this stage is to transfer those skills a patient has learnt during their admission to outside of the hospital environment, such as home and local community.
The pathways model has been designed to allow patients to work collaboratively with the team and be active in decision making in their own care, enabling them to set goals, plan, and evaluate their progression through recovery to independent living.
We also recognise that much of a patient’s recovery will take place within their own community setting and as such liaise with specialist local care services throughout the patient’s stay and afterwards to seamlessly plan their discharge and onward care.
