We’re pleased to announce the launch of the new Eastern Improvement Network. The new network has been formed to connect individuals with an interest in improvement to drive forward collective impact across the region. It provides access to peer support and discussion, opportunities to connect to like-minded individuals across the East of England, access to resources and toolkits (including the Eastern Improvement Hub), admission to workshops and training, and a range of other support.
The network was launched at Girton College in Cambridge and attended by colleagues from across the region who are involved in and leading improvement projects. CLAHRC Research Fellows, Health Education East of England Quality Improvement Fellows, HSJ Patient Safety Leaders, NHS Innovation Accelerator Fellows and Q participants also attended the network launch event.
Professor Mary Dixon Woods (RAND Professor of Health Services Research, Cambridge Centre for Health Services Research) set the scene for the event discussing how “we need to get better at getting better”, and led a discussion around variations in healthcare. Mary continued her discussion by delivering her vision for the Improvement Research Centre in Cambridge; the institute will be an enabling infrastructure for the NHS to become the worlds largest producer of systematic learning about how to improve healthcare for patients.
