Practice prevention inventory (and plan)
The practice prevention inventory and plan (PPIP) is a useful tool to assist in planning improvements. The tool can assist you to identify what implementation strategies are currently in place and identify areas for further improvement.
How to use the PPIP
The acronym PRACTICE has been used to summarise a practice prevention approach. With your practice team, you should complete the PPIP to explore prevention activities. The tool comprises seven aspects:
- Key points for consideration in improving prevention services within the practice
- Determine whether you agree or disagree with the statement in relation to your practice
- Rate how well you perform this function, activity or task within your practice. Use a scale of 1–10 to rate performance, with 1 being poor and 10 being excellent
- Rate how important this function, activity or task is for your practice. Use a scale of 1–10 to rate the importance of the function, activity or task with 1 being poor and 10 being excellent
- Identify current or possible barriers and difficulties that your practice will encounter in implementing the function, activity or task
- Identify what actions will be taken and by whom to implement or improve the function, activity or task
- Identify the resources and supports that your practice will need to implement the function, activity or task.
