Description

Event Overview:

Join us for our exciting ‘Hackathon’ event exploring improvements to Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) across the North West!

This event forms part of our ongoing scoping exercise exploring a North West CAMHS improvement programme.

Hackathons aren’t your usual type of event. This is a fantastic opportunity to share some of the challenges facing CAMHS services with colleagues from across the region, and intensively collaborate to form innovate solutions.

Whether you’re new to Hackathons or you’ve tried one before, we highly recommend you give it a go.


How will the hackathon event work?

  • The Pitch - Teams will share their specific CAMHS related problem or issue with the wider CAMHS community via an initial one minute 'pitch'. This should focus on crisis avoidance and crisis support, although other specific pitches will be considered.
  • Sprints – Teams then move through a series of fast-paced structured exercise, or ‘sprints’ to develop outlines for potential quality improvement projects.
  • Judging Panel - The day will conclude with a presentation of each of the QI proposals, with a brief Q&A session with a judging panel.

The best projects / teams will then form the final part of our CAMHS improvement scoping exercise.


Who is this event aimed at?

The Hackathon is for CAMHS teams from across membership, who have a distinct idea for a one year quality improvement project.

Each team will be different but may include:

  • Commissioners
  • Providers
  • Young people
  • Social care
  • Non statutory services

Teams are also welcome to invite partners involved in their services.


What will attendees learn at this event / workshop?

Attendees will share thoughts, ideas and insights into service needs across the region, and work together to help to shape a possible improvement programme to support members.
