Join Dr Peter Chamberlain and the Merseyside and Cheshire Quality Improvement Network (MCQUIN) Steering Group 2016 at the launch of 'IGNITE' - a new local network of healthp rofessionals that will connect and support those involved in advancing quality and innovation in healthcare.

This one-day event will bring together like-minded professionals across Cheshire and Merseyside, to enjoy a positive and motivating day which will open them up to new approaches, opportunities and skill sets. Delegates will have the opportunity to network and become part of a new local grass roots movement for positive change and quality improvement locally within health and social care.

Background...

The NHS is under huge strain. Short term funding is merely a stop-gap and unlikely to resolve this alone. Quality improvement has a key role to play in enabling organisations to be high performing within the current cost envelope.

Currently only a small proportion of staff are trained to a ratified level in quality improvement and often feel isolated. Most organisations on Merseyside do not have systematic quality improvement methodology embedded in their quality strategy or day to day function.

There is however great potential in linking like-minded small groups already in existence under the umbrella of quality improvement in a systematic way on a local footprint. This can serve as a springboard to influence organisational development in line with this approach to change, and make improvement along with regional partners.

This event will..

Empower, educate and enthuse staff regarding quality improvement in its widest form. It will assist and support individuals and organisations in their quest to increase capacity and capability in quality improvement both practically and strategically. It will also seek to be the start of a local and accessible network community that meaningfully connects and supports individuals and organisations in advancing quality and innovation.

Agenda...

The day has a variety of training, awareness and discussion events ranging from keynote talks, workshops, plenaries, project presentations, panels and network co-creation events. Topics include organisational development to support quality improvement, introduction to quality improvement, patient and family centred care, system integration and leadership, human factors and innovation.

Keynote speakers already confirmed are: David Fillingham and Prof. Arpan Guha, more details will be updated shortly.

Who should attend...

Clinicians, managers, trainees and system leaders from health and social organisations across Merseyside and Cheshire.

How to register...

The event is free for delegates and kindly being supported by the Innovation Agency, Aintree University Hospital & AQuA. Please register on the IGNITE Eventbrite page.
