|Quality and Safety Community
In the North East and North Cumbria we wish to support a critical mass and build on the region’s expertise to create a truly inclusive patient safety and quality improvement community. We wish to develop cohorts of frontline practitioners who do not currently have the skills and experience to successfully apply to be Q members but who show interest in this area and can be developed to be in a positon to join Q in future. In this interactive workshop we will share our vision for the future and welcome your feedback.
Digital Q: from next stages to ultimate QI
We believe that to face the challenges inherent in a complex health system and to truly support the regional Q community, it is important to provide an equal voice to all the involved stakeholders. If you wish to take part in the Health Foundation’s national Q initiative by becoming a Q member, join this participatory workshop co-facilitated by the Health Foundation which aims to gather ideas for the next stage of Q digital as well as what an ultimate QI infrastructure could look like.
Hospital mortality continues to be a key topic for the NHS. This workshop will examine the work the AHSN has been supporting to develop a standardised approach to Mortality Case Review across acute Trusts in the region, ahead of the rollout of the National programme being led by the Royal College of Physicians. The results of pilot work will be presented and we will also be demonstrating the secure on-line system that has been developed. The workshop will discuss how best this work can be developed and used to improve the care of patients.

When & Where
The Academic Health Science Network for the North East and North Cumbria
The Academic Health Science Network for the North East and North Cumbria (AHSN NENC) is dedicated to improving healthcare, driving wealth creation and promoting research participation across the region.
The AHSN NENC is part of a national network of 15 AHSNs that have been set up across the country by the Department of Health to identify, adopt and disseminate innovative healthcare in the NHS.
The AHSNs act as system-wide integrators to promote health improvement in the regions they serve. This means acting locally to support our NHS organisations and systems to tackle issues that can only be solved through collaborative working.
Within the North East and North Cumbria our aim is to deliver a step change in the way healthcare providers and commissioners work together to understand the local priorities and address these through identification, adoption and spread of best practice and innovation.
The innovative approaches we are seeking to identify and promote range from showcasing novel or disruptive technologies through to promoting the adherence to NICE Guidance and Technology Appraisals.
Our collaborative working with the other 14 AHSNs nationally allows us to source proven approaches and innovations so that they can be available here. We also contribute similar exemplar innovations and local improvement successes to the national effort.
We have Programmes of work established or in development on:
There are also cross-cutting programmes on:
All the programmes have, or are working up, engagement strategies, interventions, and partnerships with industry. The managerial and clinical leadership of the programmes are responsible for developing measurable impacts and returns on investment.
