Quality Improvement (QI) – Knowledge-creation, translation & implementation
Join our panel of clinical and industry experts in conversation, on Wednesday 20 January 2021 from 12:30 – 13.45, in the seventh of a series of free, live webinars.
Connect Health “Change” bring you the seventh in a series of webinars to make and embed transformation in healthcare. Aimed at system leaders and clinicians across the NHS, the webinars provide practical solutions to the challenging issues we are all grappling with.
The need to close the gap between research and clinical practice is well considered and there have been some great steps in recent years to close this gap. One area which has shown great promise and continues to deliver positive outcomes is that of Quality Improvement (QI). Despite this, understanding of, engagement with, and benefits realised from QI is variable within healthcare. This webinar will take a deep dive into QI from multiple stakeholder perspectives including clinicians, QI specialists, academics, commissioners, operations and ICS leaders with the aim to provide you with an understanding and clear direction to aid the translation of knowledge into practice to improve patient outcomes.
This webinar will cover
- Embracing research as an opportunity, rather than a threat
- Knowledge translation from academia to the clinical coalface
- Using evidence to foster sustainable improvement in healthcare
- Lessons learnt and benefits from creating a dashboard across the ICS
Speakers will include experts from Integrated Care System leaders, Trust QI leads, CCG Commissioners, Knowledge Transfer roles and Academia.
