  1. 1. CBRT™– the case for NHS Adoption Providing patients with structured relaxation support sessions
  2. 2. CBRT is a new innovation in mental healthcare NHS Change and transformation “Colour Breathing Relaxation Therapy is a vital tool that we use within our community to enable relaxation and stress management techniques, which focuses and calms the mind” Aidan Hamilton – CALM Programme Coordinator CBRT (Colour Breathing Relaxation Technique) is a UK innovation which provides all users with a simple, yet very effective, mind - body awareness technique through structured and guided relaxation support sessions.
  3. 3. A missing piece of the puzzle • CBRT provides the NHS with a Value for Money, practical and unique system for physical health, mental health and wellbeing. • CBRT provides a ‘safe care’ and ‘right care’ solution to the ever growing requirement for increased capacity within integrated care for patients with anxiety, mild to medium depression and long term conditions. This need was highlighted in the report, “How Mental Illness Loses Out in the NHS”, produced by a distinguished team of economists, psychologists, doctors and NHS managers convened by Professor Lord Layard of the LSE Centre for Economic Performance. • CBRT can contribute to productive patient care and strengthen staff and patient communication skills; CBRT is empowering. • CBRT is a high quality, yet low cost product. • A relaxation technique and therapeutic intervention - CBRT is a safe product. It is a CE Class 1 Medical Device and is made of printed matter. • CBRT is a motivational, inclusive, non-pharmaceutical, non-invasive, non-denominational and non-tactile intervention, for all ages and abilities.
  4. 4. Relaxation supports patients’ rehabilitation A positive outlook to aid patients’ wellbeing
  5. 5. Aligning with IAPT Commissioning goals Feedback from an NHS Commissioner of Psychological Therapies An NHS Commissioner of Psychological Therapies has written the following about the CBRT NHS Training Initiative: “The principles of building confidence and socialisation are good, as commissioners we understand how important this is for a patient’s recovery.” “The proposal is very good and well presented, with a good evidence“The proposal is very good and well presented, with a good evidence base and clinical outcomes.” “On paper, the savings are good, a reduction in primary care presentations, and this is similar to IAPT where we also know there are reductions in referrals to secondary care.”
  6. 6. NICE Quality Standards Programme QS for Depression in adults In March 2013, the CBRT Initiative was supported by the Innovation Promotion Manager of NHS South of England. It was suggested that the paper “NICE – Quality Standards Programme – Cost impact and commissioning assessment: quality standard for depression in adults - March 2011” should be provided as an example of potential cost savings for the CBRT Initiative as it states on pages 8 and 9 that the total expected saving per IAPT patient rounded as being £340.00 in a two year period. 125 staff trained in CBRT would therefore only need to support a minimum of 264 Patients in Year One (less than one per day) to recoup the initial investment in the whole CBRT Training Initiative. (2.11 Patients per trained staff member.) Supporting more patients would, the NICE paper suggests, result in a saving to the organisation as well as enhanced quality of care and experience for the patient.
  7. 7. The case for adoption – a talking therapy “Grass roots” level patients support • CBRT helps people with anxiety to learn a simple technique and how to relax themselves naturally. • The benefits of individual and group therapy are combined with a visually appealing and easy to learn Mindfulness technique. • Patients receiving individual CBRT sessions are encouraged to talk about “how the colours make them feel” using the CBRT Initial • CBRT sessions can be provided by staff from many disciplines including nursing, allied healthcare and social care, across primary and secondary care, occupational therapy, physiotherapy and in many clinics make them feel” using the CBRT Initial Response Sheets© prior to receiving their relaxation session - this is a popular activity. • CBRT can provide Patients with a structured relaxation intervention whilst waiting to join the IAPT Programme. therapy, physiotherapy and in many clinics including obesity, insomnia, hypertension, substance misuse issues, smoking cessation, PTSD, trauma, bereavement, maternity.
  8. 8.

  9. 9. CBRT Initiative for NHS Trusts and CCGs Taking the lead in Patient Care and Innovation From 1st April 2013, CBRT will focus on working initially with 8 NHS Trusts and CCGs: • To train 28 staff per Trust/CCG (224 in total) • To “Train the Trainer” (40 in total) • Each NHS Trainer to train a further 20 staff (800 in total) • Evaluate Post Training assessment papers and case studies from each individual NHS Trust and CCG group and provide these as case studies for NHS Evidence. • Work with partners to create an NHS quality database for Assessment Paper(s) feedback; Case Studies Feedback; Patients/Users feedback. • Work with the RCN Accreditation Unit to complete the RCN CPD accreditation process and similar process with COT (The College of Occupational Therapists.) • See contact details on last side if interested in being in this initial cohort

Group contact and regular support is far more important than a packet ofhighlights the importance of integration and a mind and body approach to care • The Commercial Case – CBRT requires a modest initial investment and is commercially viable.
