Learning from Excellence (LfE)
Delegates will gain insights into the LfE initiative and use of the action research methodology – Appreciative Inquiry (AI) – that is used to capture and learn from good practice (evidenced by results from the Health Foundation funded PRAISe project). Attendees will learn the importance of positivity, respect and compassion, in maintaining a safe work environment that encourages high quality care and an improvement mind-set.

This workshop will provide attendees with an overview of the new Innovation Technology Payment schemes for 2019/2020 and the learnings from implementing previous innovations.
How can better use of digital technology and data improve the experience and outcomes for people traditionally attending hospital outpatient appointments, and how can the NHS drive down the cost of meeting their needs? Attendees will be introduced to innovators in this area and hear how these have been adopted into the NHS. There will also be the opportunity to discuss the key themes around adoptions to support learning and sharing of good practice.
Afternoon workshops (1pm – 3pm):
