HSJ invites you to view an exclusive webinar on innovation and knowledge sharing in the NHS, supported by NHS North West.
There is never a shortage of ideas on how to improve the efficiency and efficacy of the NHS. Each year, individuals from both inside and outside the service come up with ways that healthcare providers could provide better care. Some of those ideas will get implemented in one department or ward. A few may get introduced throughout a hospital or trust. Very few will spread any further.
Why is innovation and best practice slow to spread in the NHS? How can knowledge gained in one department be shared with another, and then with other departments in other organisations? Might it then be possible to share knowledge with colleagues in other countries?
This HSJ webinar, supported by NHS North West, will bring together an expert panel drawn from both industry and healthcare to debate these issues.
Panelists include John Saxby, Chief Executive, Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, Dr Linda Magee, Chief Operating Officer, Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC), Elaine Darbyshire, Director of Strategic Communications for NHS North of England and Trevor Dale, Managing Director of Attrainability
Key questions for discussion will include:
Why does the NHS struggle to spread knowledge, innovation and good practice?
How can healthcare trusts more effectively share their knowledge with colleagues in other organisations?
What impact will ‘Innovation, health and wealth’ have on the spread of knowledge in the NHS?
What can the NHS learn from industry about innovation and knowledge sharing?
What are the potential commercial benefits of more effective knowledge sharing within the NHS and beyond?
