#AHPsDay @NHSImprovement

Friday 31st August 2018 by @jkfillingham

Your invitation to join us on 15th October for #AHPsDay :

  • Watch and engage in our virtual presentation at 10am via @WeAHPs periscope.

  • Launch of ‘AHP’s: improving practice and delivering solutions’ case study collection.

The Allied Health Professions (AHP) team at NHS Improvement have been overwhelmed with the requests to join celebrations across England for AHP’s Day. Unfortunately, we cannot be everywhere on the same day so have decided to live stream for everyone to access. Our aim is to enable AHPs nationally to engage with the team as part of their local celebrations and in pursuit of promoting the value of AHPs in the delivery of high quality care within their trusts/STP footprints. So, with the support of @WeAHPs we are going to periscope a presentation from the team at 10am which will last approx. 45 mins and then take any questions which have been posted via twitter.

On the day, we will also be launching our ‘AHP’s: improving practice and delivering solutions’ case study collection. The aim is to provide a sustainable mechanism of spread and sustainability of good practice and further demonstrate the transformative potential of AHPs across the health and wider system. Some of you will have heard about our ambition to publish 70 AHP case studies for NHS 70. This is the start of that ambition. It is a work in progress and we would welcome submissions to the repository to offer the opportunity of sharing your improvement journey and/or best practice. Details about how to do this will be shared on the day.

Don’t forget, on the same day a NICE into Action webinar on the role of NICE quality standards will be taking place at 12.30 – 1.15pm. You can find further information on how to register and view this webinar here - http://www.workcast.com/register?cpak=9826146426755126

So, please do join myself and the team. We look forward to celebrating with you on the 15th October.
