Realising a systems approach to healthcare design and delivery
27 – 28 November 2017
Hughes Hall College - University Of Cambridge
Organised by CLAHRC EoE, PenCLAHRC, EAHSN.
The NIHR CLAHRCs for the East of England (EoE) and the South West Peninsula together with the Eastern Academic Health Sciences Network (EAHSN) are pleased to announce the jointly organised Knowledge-Sharing event:
“Realising a systems approach to healthcare design and delivery”
This event is designed to bring together members of the NIHR CLAHRCs and affiliated organizations, and a cross section of industry with a focus on the use of the systems approach in healthcare, in a two-day conference.
This event is scheduled to take place from the 27th of November to lunch time on 28th November 2017 in the University of Cambridge.
The aim of this event is to identify the diversity of tools that are often employed by practitioners and researchers in the context of a systems approach to healthcare design and delivery and to explore how these map onto four fundamental ways of thinking that drive the approach – Systems Thinking, Design Thinking, Risk Thinking and People Thinking.
Who should attend?
Attendance is encouraged from members of the following groups/bodies:
- NIHR CLAHRCs
- Academic researchers
- Improvement staff
- NHS clinical staff and managers
- Patients and carers
Expected benefits of the conference will include:
1. Becoming acquainted with the latest thinking on the Systems Approach to healthcare design and delivery.
2. Networking with other researchers and practitioners across the national CLAHRC on the Systems Approach to healthcare design and delivery.
3. Share your own work on the Systems Approach to healthcare design and delivery.
The event will be free of charge but delegates will be expected to cover their own travel and accommodation costs.
We invite all members of the NIHR CLAHRCs and affiliated organisations involved in one way or another in using a systems approach in supporting healthcare design, delivery and improvement to book a free ticket for this event.
This event is designed around a recent report by the Royal Academy of Engineering on a System Approach to health and care design and continuous improvement ” available at http://www.raeng.org.uk/news/news-releases/2017/september/healthcare-professionals-and-engineers-partner-to
