Making it happen: transforming primary care. An Enabling Practices to Impro...
Thu 13 October 2016, 09:30 – 16:30 BST
Join us for a stimulating conversation on the practicalities of transforming primary care. Health Services Management Centre* and guests bring their expertise to the service delivery leaders of Dudley primary care.
Hear from the academics about UK evidence and the GPs and Nurses who have made the types of changes that transform services for patients and staff. Spaces are limited to maximise the impact of this intimate learning event.
In the meantime here is an introduction to the conversation…
Evidence and experience highlight the challenges of translating an innovative idea of how to improve care for patients into the busy working realities of general practice. Even once they get going it can be difficult to sustain initiatives in the long term and to retain a clear focus on the impact it makes for patients and their communities. This interactive session will provide insights, challenge and inspiration on how to achieve improvements through learning from the direct experience of those who have led such changes. Sharing what worked (and what didn’t) the speakers will provide practical insights into how they sought to respond to common barriers and how they would approach such improvement in the future. The insights will include creating shared care models for people with diabetes; adopting a social model for health and working with people with long term conditions who live in unstable environments. The session will be facilitated by the Health Services Management Centre – they will bring further perspectives from their own research and teaching and encourage an interactive and challenging day.
