20 January 2021 21 January 2021Integration and collaboration are central features of current health care policy. During the Covid-19 pandemic we have seen some great examples of NHS organisations coming together, as well as closer working between health and local government, and health and the voluntary sector. Greater collaboration across health and care organisations will continue to be important as the system begins to recover.
This King's Fund programme is designed to equip senior leaders to develop the skills and behaviours associated with a more collaborative style of leadership. It uses current policy developments to inform and test out what will be most helpful in ‘the real world’ of ICS, STPs and place-based working.
The programme takes place over six months and will be a combination of virtual and face to face modules.
Module one: 20–21 January 2021 (online via Zoom) Module two: 24–25 March 2021 (online via Zoom) Module three: 24–25 May 2021 (London) Module four: 2–3 June 2021 (London) Further information and registration
21 January 2021This course will offer a practical guide to Root Cause Analysis with a focus on systems-based patient safety investigation as proposed by the forthcoming National Patient Safety Incident Response Framework which emphasises the requirement for investigations to be led by those with safety investigation training/expertise and with dedicated time and resource to complete the work. This course will include an opportunity for learners to gain a Level 3 qualification (A level equivalent) in RCA skills (2 credits / 20 hours) on successful completion of a short-written assignment.

21 January 2021 10:30 11:15One of the great opportunities for ICSs may be around reducing future demand for healthcare by ensuring that people remain healthy or are helped to reduce the chances of deteriorating if they do develop an illness or long-term condition.
Prevention and early intervention underlie much of the NHS Long Term Plan, with a recognition that the NHS can no longer simply be an “ill health” service and instead bends to think about prevention and reducing health inequalities.
Many ICSs are keen to develop this role and bring together the organisations they represent – across both the NHS and local authorities –to work collaboratively on this. But with resources and time limited, they may need to concentrate their efforts on particular areas.
The second wave of covid – and the prospect of widespread vaccination starting within weeks - has added a new dimension to this with an urgent need to reduce the pressure covid places on the NHS and on normal life in general.
This webinar will ask:
has covid helped focus the NHS’s eyes on prevention? where are the “easy wins” for ICSs where interventions are most likely to have significant results within a reasonable timeframe? what key steps do ICSs need to take to get the maximum benefit from these? How can they build common purpose among their members to ensure these happen? how can public health be made “business as usual” for everyone working in the NHS – including those in hospitals? how can ICSs balance the preventative interventions which deliver short-term benefits with those which take longer to offer a “return on investment”?

21 January 2021 16:30 17:30Uncover the impact and value of media stories exposing patient safety incidents.
Shaun Lintern, Health Correspondent at The Independent, will join Jonathan Hazan, Chair of Patient Safety Learning and Moira Durbridge, President of the Patient Safety Section of the Royal Society of Medicine, for this interactive webinar which will explain how the media work to promote patient safety stories, illustrate how media stories can be a spur to local patient safety improvements and show how the media can be a powerful medium for communicating patient safety.
