As the conference season begins, we are excited to be returning to in-person events. You’ll find the Q team exhibiting at a number of events this month, alongside the Health Foundation. Come and say hello, meet the team and meet each other on our stands at:
- NHS ConfedExpo, Wednesday 15 – Thursday 16 June (stand E106)
- NHS Scotland conference, Tuesday 21 – Wednesday 22 June (stand 20)
If you are attending the International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare some of the team will be speaking as part of two sessions:
Aligning the world of improvement and digital: collaborating for technology-enabled care, Tuesday 21 June 15:00 – 16:00
Technology is playing an ever-increasing role in health care, accelerated by the pandemic. Yet service improvement and digital change are often managed in silos, leading to solutions that are less likely to scale and sustain.
Join this session for practical insights from an ambitious partnership between Q and NHS England and NHS Improvement: boosting collaboration in technology enabled remote monitoring.
What’s next for QI? How we create new models for improvement, Wednesday 22 June, 11:00 – 12:15
Speakers: Penny Pereira, Amar Shah
This session will illustrate the range of ways in which health care providers and systems from different contexts across the world utilised quality improvement in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We will describe the range of methods and tools that were deployed during the pandemic response and illustrate how health systems were able to utilise and deploy their existing improvement capability.
From this, we will propose some theories about what we have learnt about quality improvement over the past year, and the opportunities that this presents for the way that we practice and apply quality improvement in the future.
