Talks offered

  • Communities of Practice: Driving Improvement by Encouraging Collaboration (joint talk with Katherine Joel)

    Touching upon examples from the Health Innovation Network and West Midlands AHSN, this session will offer attendees the opportunity to get to grips with the theory and practicalities of convening, hosting and being a member of a community of practice. This talk will provide honest insight into the benefits and challenges of using community of practice methodology to drive improvement and will offer tips as to how attendees can successfully create their own communities. There will be plenty of time for questions and for others to share what their experiences too.
