Innovation Champions – Identifying unmet clinical need and scoping solutions

25th September 2017 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Have you or your colleagues got a real issue with something at work? Piece of kit? Service? Process?

How do you know if it’s unique to your organisation?

How can you quantify and evidence the problem?

How do you create or identify a robust solution?

This interactive workshop for NHS staff covers the first three stops of ‘The Innovation Line’ (Please see below).  Through group exercises and working together we will explore:

  • What is a genuine unmet clinical need?
  • Why does it need to be widespread to have potentially big impact?
  • Observation is key
  • How not to generate solutions
  • Tools to help generate and fine tune solutions
  • Gathering your evidence to make a case

Delivered for the Yorkshire and Humber Innovation Champions Network, this practical workshop is free to staff from NHS organisations who are members of the Yorkshire & Humber AHSN and/or Medipex.  If you have colleagues who have an interest in innovation and would like to hear more about the network, please invite them along.

We are also hosting How & Why We Protect Innovative Ideas between 2pm and 4pm.  Please consult the events page for more information and the link to registration if you would like to attend that session also.
