Across the globe, change is happening more quickly and disruptively.  Organisations, systems and communities are fundamentally changing the way that they go about making change happen. Yet many of the methods we use in healthcare to improve quality or performance haven’t changed much in over a decade.

In this webinar, Helen Bevan will outline some of the latest thinking and practice in the wider world of change and improvement which is starting to permeate into our world of health and care.  She will provide a picture of a future world where everyone (including service users, families and communities) can help tackle the most challenging issues; where improvement is “pulled” rather than “pushed”; where diversity, dissent and divergence are valued as highly as conformity and consensus and where the role of formal leaders is to help create the conditions for change and get out of the way to let people get on with it. She will illustrate this with some practical examples of the new approaches.

Do you want to maximise your potential to achieve improvement at scale and make a bigger difference to your community?  Revolutionise the way you think about improving services? Find out how you can utilise existing technologies to achieve a greater reach and momentum for improvement programmes? Enjoy thinking differently to create a bigger difference?

Learning outcomes:

  • Get a sense of hope, potential and possibility about the future of change in health and care
  • Identify major themes and trends in the global world of change and transformation that are likely to shake our world of health and care improvement
  • Learn how “change platforms” (approaches to change that allow everyone to have a voice, to connect and collaborate and socially create the future ) will lead to the demise of “change programmes” as we know them
  • Consider the opportunities and implications of the above for our own practice as leaders or activists in health and care
  • Model new forms of collective learning, collaboration and community building and bring the future forward
