About Q talks

This is a listing of health and care improvement-related topics that community members have offered to give talks on, to interested audiences. If you’d like to organise a talk please contact the individual. Talks can be given face-to-face, or else choose a suitable online method.

If you choose to organise a talk and are happy for it to be open to all, we encourage you to live-stream it to a wider audience. Please then add it to the Q event listing to let other improvers know when it takes place.

Members: If you have a talk you would like to add please email details to: q@health.org.uk.

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

    Ann Abbassi

    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.
