Network with other improvement professionals in health and care
- Build knowledge of improvement practice
- Learn new improvement tools and methodology to use in everyday work
- Be supported to undertake your own improvements
- Be able to measure your improvements to show impact on patient/service user care
Our improvement network is open to all staff (clinical and non-clinical) in the North East and North Cumbria health and care system who want to drive improvements for their service – in particular, those responsible for improvement including managers, practitioners, and project and programme managers.
The improvement network has been set up to support health and care services to come together to learn about improvement, share experiences, and gain support and improvement coaching expertise.
At our last Improvement Network, we were joined by Jemma Barton (Head of Quality Improvement and Effectiveness from North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust) and Dr Ruth O'Dowd (Consultant Anaesthetist and Associate Medical Director for Patient Safety & Quality Improvement from North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust) to speak to us about the Patient Safety Incident Response Framework (PSIRF).
This framework is coming and replacing the previous Serious Incident Framework (SIF), and organisations must have implemented their Trust plan by Autumn 2023, but how much do you know about the new framework and how does this link to improvement? Watch the recording below to find out more.
In October, we were joined by Sarah Walker, Programme Manager - Capability Building from AQUA. Sarah spoke about how to foster greater influence in improvement activities. You can watch the recording of this session below:
