Event description

Description

London South Bank University are pleased to host the Darzi Fellows Alumni Event where NESTA will be presenting the ‘100 Day Health Innovation Challenge’.

Nesta 100 Day Health Innovation Challenge

People Powered Results (PPR) is a structured innovation method that unlocks the knowledge and skill of frontline staff and service users, to accelerate the pace and achievement of change across complex systems. It complements traditional top down approaches to change and transformation, by empowering and mobilising those closest to the action to drive change forward.

The approach brings a focus on achieving results and supporting an action orientated culture of collaboration, learning and experimentation. It has been designed to support health and care economies to tackle both the; Performance Challenge - the need to address increasing demand and complex, and sometimes declining, performance, in the context of limited resources; and the Collaboration Challenge – stimulating action and collaboration across multiple care settings and professional boundaries.
