GM AHSN Patient Safety Collaborative – Appreciative Inquiry
Thu 10 November 2016, 09:00 – 17:00 GMT
The Improvement Practitioner modules have been co-designed with members and partners based upon the needs and challenges that they are facing in understanding and improving the culture of safety within their organisations. We believe that addressing behaviours, understanding safety cultures and measuring impact are key components of any safety improvement plans and can be referenced within your ‘Sign Up To Safety’ plans.
Who is this event aimed at?
Appreciative inquiry (AI) is a model for analysis, decision-making and the creation of strategic change, particularly within complex organisations. It involves the art and practice of asking questions that strengthen a system’s capacity to apprehend, anticipate and heighten positive potential.
What will attendees learn this event / workshop?
Provide you with an introduction to AI in safety improvement.
Support the four underpinning principles of the safety framework: Openness; thoughtfulness; reflectiveness; inquisitiveness.
Enable you to build on strength-based, solution-focused & asset-based approaches to healthcare.
Provide you with practical tools and activities to develop your own appreciative inquiry style. This includes reframing, generating and developing appreciative questions, and the power of narrative.
Support you in using AI to develop safety and good practice with examples of where AI has been successfully applied in healthcare.
