Embedding Innovation in the NHS: Patient, practice and systems perspectives.

4 May 2017

22nd June 2017, 12-4.30pm 

Woburn House, 20-24 Tavistock Square, Kings Cross, London WC1H 9HU 

This half-day workshop will bring together a diverse audience for lively debate and discussion about current practice in the UK’s health care innovation landscape. The workshop is a response to one of UCL’s current policy ‘grand challenges’ - understanding how innovation can be successfully embedded in the NHS, and what learning can be applied from other sectors. 

To address this challenge, the workshop will provide a forum for exploring different perspectives on health care innovation. It will introduce tangible examples of where health innovations have been successfully developed and implemented in the NHS in recent years, highlighting the types of support mechanisms and collaborations that have made this possible. Patient demands for innovation will be discussed, as well as the organisational and system level interventions being used to drive innovation forwards in the NHS, such as new models of care. 

The workshop will bring together different communities of practice to share their knowledge and experience – inventors, charities, NHS representatives, industry, academics and researchers, and those involved in policy. The format will be a mixture of panel discussions and guest speaker presentations, with time for wider group discussion and networking. 

Confirmed panellists / contributors include: 

  • Charles Tallack, Head of NHS Operational Research and Evaluation, NHS England 
  • Katherine Langford, Programme Lead Health and Social Care, The Innovation Unit 
  • Dr Liz Mear, Chief Executive, The Innovation Agency and Chair of the national AHSN Network 
  • Prof Naomi Fulop, Professor of Health Care Organisation and Management, UCL 

Date and timings: 22nd June 2017, 12pm – 4.30pm (drinks and networking 4.30pm-5pm)

Building capacity for academic writing.. by Professor Anne Rogers

‘publication tsunami that is now an exponential wave’. The effects of this tsunami are well rehearsed: the enormous pressure on peer review processes; reduction in the time researchers have to read individual outputs; and, perhaps most commented on, the growth of a commercial market of fee-for-publication-based journals which lack the usual bulwarks of scientific credibility read blog >
