    Purpose: To identify key strengths, weaknesses (gaps), opportunities and

    threats (SWOT) to inform development of regional plans.

    Approach: Use your collected service data to complete an ‘environmental scan’

    for your regional consortium. This will provide an assessment of the

    current state of palliative care services across your region.

     The strengths and weaknesses are internal factors while the

    opportunities and threats are an assessment of external factors. All

    internal and external factors may influence your regional directions.

    Method: Dependent on your Consortia needs, you may want to first

    undertake a SWOT analysis at a local service level and consider

    similarities and differences between factors identified across

    individual service SWOT analyses. One services ‘threat’ may be another service’s ‘opportunity’!

    These data may then form the start of a regional SWOT analysis.

    Alternatively, you may want to circulate the regional service profile

    data to all Consortia members and from this, then undertake the

    regional SWOT analysis as a group.

    Depending on with whom you undertake the initial SWOT analysis,

    the data can then be further reviewed by the same group, a sub-

    group, the whole planning team or any other key stakeholders.

    From all the SWOT data, you will need to prioritise the critical

    strengths, weaknesses, opportunities or threats. Develop actions to

    address these issues that will:

    ? Build on the strengths

    ? Eliminate of manage the weaknesses

    ? Exploit the opportunities

    ? Ease or lower the threats.

It may be more helpful to address your weaknesses rather than

    just reinforcing your strengths (the so-called easy bit).

    Think about whether you can reduce the threats or turn them into

    opportunities.

    Outcomes: A clear understanding of how to harness the strengths, weaknesses,

    opportunities and threats to facilitate the development and

    implementation of your regional plan.

    Note: The following grids can help you with your SWOT analysis.
