Promoting a Culture of Research & Innovation in Clinical Teams

Wednesday 09 October 2013, 09:00 - 13:30

Bolton Whites Hotel (Reebok Stadium)
De Havilland Way, Horwich
Greater Manchester


Research is embedded within the Health and Social Care Act 2012 and the NHS constitution is explicit in its commitment to 'innovation and the promotion, conduct and use of research to improve the current and future health and care of the population'. However, managers are facing significant challenges in meeting this agenda, especially in a clinical environment where they have to deliver more for less.

This half day workshop has been developed through collaboration between NHS Research and Development North West and the Centre for Professional Workforce Development for members of the professional workforce networks of Pharmacy, Allied Health Professions, Healthcare Science and Psychological Professions with team leadership responsibilities.

It marks the start of an on-going conversation about how research and innovation that is embedded within clinical service can to contribute to the delivery of the highest quality patient care.

Speakers include Melanie Ogden (Head of Innovation Delivery, NHS England); Dr Jim Gardner (Medical Director, Lancashire Local Area Team, NHS England) and Dr Liz Mear (Chief Executive, The Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust; Managing Director, North West Coast Academic Health Science Network).
