Healthcare Science National Conference: Forging the Future Through Collaboration and Sharing Friday 24 June 2016

Registration for this Event is now closed, for further details please contact the NES Conference Team on 0131 656 3215/3216/4378 or events@nes.scot.nhs.uk

The annual national conference is the key networking and awareness raising event for Healthcare Science in Scotland. Now in its 9th year, the event provides healthcare leaders, decision-makers and frontline staff a unique opportunity to listen, learn, but most importantly, participate in discussions about how Healthcare Scientists can lead and influence the future shape of healthcare delivery in Scotland. The new National Clinical Strategy for Scotland aims to prepare us for the next 10 to 15 years which makes this conversation even more pertinent.

Our keynote speaker is Professor Craig White, Divisional Clinical Lead in the Quality and Planning Division of the Healthcare Quality and Strategy Directorate, Scottish Government. He currently leads for the Scottish Government work on a range of areas spanning governance and improvement.  Craig chairs the National Advisory Group for Palliative and End of Life Care and will talk at the conference on the National Clinlcal Strategy.

The National Clinical Strategy sets out the challenges facing healthcare services and recognises the significance of technological changes in healthcare. It highlights the need to address over-treatment, harm, waste and variation, whilst continuing to enhance patient safety, clinical effectiveness and person-centred approaches to care. The emphasis is on collaboration to transform our models of service delivery so that they are organised and delivered at the most effective level, guided by evidence and evaluation of change.

It is our challenge, as Healthcare Scientists, to put ourselves at the centre of the required changes by demonstrating our willingness and expertise to provide the necessary solutions to the challenges set out in the National Clinical Strategy by working together with our colleagues both locally, regionally and across Scotland. The annual event will celebrate the work of Healthcare Scientists as we aim to drive improvement and deliver the ambitions of the Scottish Healthcare Science National Delivery Plan 2015-2020 and explore how we can build on our achievements and position ourselves as the catalysts to forge the future through collaboration and the sharing of best practice and new innovative ways of working.

 

POSTERS

Have you made changes to the way you deliver your service and have you evaluated these changes? Have you pioneered innovative ways of working? Have you delivered local service improvements that merit wider dissemination? If you have, why not share your experience with your colleagues at this year’s number one event for Healthcare Science in Scotland.
