National Learning Event for 1000 Lives Plus
Thursday 25th November is the date for the next 1000 Lives Plus National Learning Event, which is taking place concurrently in the Liberty Stadium, Swansea and The Optic Technium, St Asaph via satellite link.
Invitations to organisations to send a team have already been issued for the event, which will focus on the programme’s progress so far – on both a national and local level.
There will also be the opportunity to hear from one organisation’s executive team on how they have prioritised programme areas in line with their strategic overview and to meet their local targets on mortality and harm reduction.
Rebecca O’Malley, a patient safety champion with the World Health Organization, will deliver the keynote address. She will draw upon her own experience of the devastating effects caused by misdiagnosis, which has led to her becoming a leading international patient safety advocate.
Topics covered during the day will include analysing the progress and success so far, assessing the challenges ahead, and understanding how small tests of change can work together to create whole system change. There will be opportunities for organisations to update each other on progress and identify ‘quick wins’ that can make a real difference in the lives of patients.
Organisational teams will gain an understanding of their contribution, and the role of the 1000 Lives Plus mini-collaboratives, in meeting their organisation’s aims to reduce mortality and harm.
The 1000 Lives Plus directors, Dr Alan Willson and Jan Davies, will be joined by the Chief Executive of NHS Wales, Paul Williams, and the chairs of 1000 Lives Plus, Dr Chris Jones, Medical Director for Wales, and Professor Sir Mansel Aylward, chair of Public Health Wales.
