Evaluation Learning Network – Workshop #3: Reporting, Communication and Follow-up

Date: Tuesday 18th October 2022

Time: 12:30 – 13:30

Location: Online (MS Teams)

After an inaugural workshop series over the course of 2021, the Evaluation Learning Network is back for its second year. We are delighted to announce the final NIHR ARC NWL Evaluation Learning Network Workshops of 2022. This year, we will once again cover how to plan for, conduct and effectively report and communicate the results of evaluations of healthcare innovations.

The Innovation & Evaluation Theme’s extensive experience in capacity building across the sector and suggestions about needs and aspirations of potential participants have shaped the content and format of the Evaluation Learning Network.

The Evaluation Learning Network is intended to be a platform where participants can improve their evaluation expertise and receive support with their current evaluation projects.

The main objective of the Evaluation Learning Network will be to create an environment where you can:

  • improve your skills on evaluation

  • access evaluation expertise provided by the NIHR ARC North-West London evaluation team and other partners

  • access and exchange resources which can help you with your evaluation work

  • share your experience and challenges on real projects with peers and experts


Why is this important?

Innovation is an essential part of healthcare. Yet, even despite strong supporting evidence, not all new ideas, technologies or processes are widely used and adopted across the healthcare setting. Further, even when they are adopted, they may not have the desired effect, and may change the way healthcare is delivered in ways that were not anticipated.

A structured and well-planned evaluation can be an invaluable tool to better understand the effects and effectiveness of a newly implemented healthcare innovation. By providing a general roadmap for conducting evaluations, and supplementing this with real-world experiences from ongoing projects, we aim to provide our participants with the tools necessary to perform and conduct their own evaluations.


How will it work?

This is the third in a series of three workshops spread across the 2022 calendar year. This workshop will last 1 hour and cover topics pertaining to Reporting and Communication and Follow-up, including:

  • Consolidating results

  • Preparing and disseminating evaluation reports

  • Sharing findings and lessons learned

  • Using and following up on evaluations results

We will also welcome Dr Laura Lennox as a guest speaker, who will share her experience and insights from reporting and communicating the results of a recent evaluation she undertook.

We will aim to make the workshop as interactive as possible (answering your questions and hearing about your evaluations throughout) to create a learning community environment.

We will also plan to reserve some time at the end of the workshop to gather your feedback on the sessions you have attended throughout the year.


Who is the workshop for?

We aim to target a wide range of professionals with an interest in the evaluation space, included but not limited to:

      • health professionals

      • improvement managers engaged in quality improvement projects in the NHS

      • programme/project managers

      • consultants or other professionals working on/ interested in evaluation in the health and social care setting

      • researchers

      • academics

      • students

      • experts with an interest in evaluation in the health and social care setting.

If you are currently involved in an evaluation project and would like to share your experiences during one of the workshops, please reach out to us via the email address below.


Who are we?

We are a team of researchers based in the Department of Primary Care and Public Health at Imperial College London. We are part of the Innovation & Evaluation Theme of the NIHR-funded ARC NWL. Our aim is to study and improve the uptake of evidence-based healthcare innovation through studying the implementation of new ideas in the healthcare sector.

Associated Theme: Innovation and Evaluation

Collaborative partnerships for healthier lives: Getting research into practice

  • Date: Wednesday, 12 October 2022

  • Time: 12:00 - 17:00

  • Location: Weston Hall, Ealing, London, W5 5RF

  • Lunch provided

Associated Theme: Collaborative Learning and Capacity Building

About the theme

Delivering centred patient-centred care and closing the translation gap in today’s health services, requires an understanding of care pathways and the impact of all roles “beyond the walls” of a single organisation.

Integrated care systems aim, through improved collaboration across teams and sectors, to deliver better outcomes for their populations. Patient and population outcomes are not determined by one person or one team, but through the quality of partnerships within the health and social care services that empower communities, the voices of patients and the public.

Effective collaboration between sectors, organisations, and communities requires, as well as organisational re-structuring, support for the many people in many teams whose way of working will change as collaboration becomes more effective. In developing a truly integrated organisation that reflects the interconnectedness of modern care delivery, relationships and responsibilities must be re-aligned across organisations and communities so that many people can work more collaboratively – and deliver better care and together be better prepared to adopt novel research findings.

It is now time for us to embrace this within health services research and explore the role we can play as facilitators and collaborators across the health and social care system.

Who is the event for?

Open to those who have an interest in translating evidence into practice and achieving improvements in health behaviours and population health, including but not limited to:

  • Patients/carers

  • GP’s/Practice Managers/Practice Nurses

  • NHS provider staff

  • Higher Education Institutions partners

  • NIHR Partners

  • Relevant third sector organisations/community champions

  • Local authority/ Social care partners/Public Health Directors and Commissioners

What will you gain?

Following the event, delegates will be able to:

  • Consider current partnership working within local health and social care in the context of research programmes and identify where collaboration across sectors could improve health delivery and outcomes

  • Identify current ways of working that might impede the implementation of health services research and where significant changes in practice might accelerate research translation

  • Consider how we actively coproduce and codesign with communities to accelerate the dissemination of health research into routine care at neighbourhood, place, and system levels

  • Reflect on how an understanding of collaborative practice might inform and improve the delivery of health services research and promote its importance to care

Associated Themes: Ethnicity & Health Unit and Multimorbidity and Mental Health

Signs of climate breakdown are evident across the globe. From wildfires in the US and Europe to heatwaves in India and Pakistan and heavy rainfall in the UK, record-breaking extreme weather events are occurring in every continent and increasing in frequency and intensity. What is unexpected, however, is the speed with which global warming even at the current level of 1C is resulting in climate chaos. Contrary to earlier scientific forecasts that temperatures would rise to over 40C by 2050 in the UK, this record has already been reached by the summer of 2022, prompting leading climate scientists to warn that the future is already here. We are informed that climate breakdown is inevitable and global leaders acknowledge that they are scared, as avoiding the most catastrophic outcomes is the best we can now do.

The fact that climate change is the biggest threat to global public health was recognised more than a decade ago but carbon emissions have simply continued to increase. Estimations of the direct health effects of aspects of climate change such as heat stress, floods, air pollution, food insecurity and the spread of vector-borne disease demonstrate that the global burden of morbidity and mortality is also increasing steeply on every continent. But, despite the recognition that the mental health toll is likely to be as severe, few efforts have been made to quantify this burden, study its extended impact on society, forecast its effects on socio-economic trends of the future or to explore ways by which the negative impacts could be addressed and hope could be harnessed to ensure the best societal outcomes for the future. This collection of research studies, commentaries and analyses attempts to remedy this gap, as it shines a light on this hitherto neglected area of the mental health and wellbeing impacts of climate change.

Join the guest editor Professor Mala Rao (Imperia l College London), Dr Adrian James (President, Royal College Psychiatrists) and authors from around the world for a one-hour webinar to mark the launch of a special issue of the International Review of Psychiatry on the climate crisis and mental health.

Welcoming and Valuing International Students

Date: 27 June 2022

Time: 13:00 14:00 BST

Location: Online

Background

International Medical Graduates (IMGs) have served the NHS since its inception. However, there has not been a standardised induction programme to enable IMGs to be integrated into NHS working and living in the UK. Meanwhile, substantial research evidence has become available to demonstrate the benefits of a comprehensive induction not only for the wellbeing and performance of IMGS but also to patient safety and the delivery of high-quality care.

A comprehensive induction programme has been in development since 2019 and is now ready to be implemented across NHS Trusts. The aim is to formally launch the induction programme on 27 June 2022.

A webinar is planned on the day, 27th June 2022 at 13:00 to 14:00. The aim of the webinar is to mark a key milestone in welcoming and valuing IMGs and disseminating information about the induction programme. The induction programme is testimony to the commitment, collaboration, and cooperation of all the appropriate NHS organisations, including NHSEI, HEE, BMA, GMC, and MPS. The launch is an opportunity to celebrate the collaboration and reflect on the need for the continuing partnership to support IMGs throughout their careers.

It is likely that Trusts will vary in the quality of induction they currently offer. But from the launch date, Trusts will be expected to plan a roadmap to achieve and deliver all aspects of the induction recommended in the guidance.

What are the objectives?

The purpose of this webinar is to:

  • Inform all interested NHS staff of the launch and describe the programme and how it may be delivered

  • Respond to questions from the participants

  • Encourage all staff to contribute formally or informally to welcoming and valuing IMGs into the NHS and to explain the key roles of NHS organisations to deliver the programme

Who is the intended audience?

The intended audience for the webinar includes, but is not limited to:

  • IMGs

  • All medical staff in NHS Trusts

  • Educational/Clinical Supervisors

  • Postgraduate Medical Education Departments (Director of Medical Education & Medical Education Managers)

  • HR Managers

  • Medical Directors & Responsible Officers

  • HEE Regional Associate Deans across UK

  • GMC Employer Liaison Advisers across UK

  • Medical Staffing Teams in NHS Trusts

  • GPs

  • Staff of People Directorates

  • Policy and system leaders

  • BMA and MPS policy teams

NIHR ARC NWL Collaborative Learning Event - ‘Road to Recovery: Working differently for a better future’

  • Date: 11 May 2022

  • Time: 12:00 – 17:00

  • Venue: St Paul’s Centre, Queen Caroline Street, London, W6 9PJ

Registrations are now open for our Collaborative Learning Event which will be held 11 May at St Paul’s Centre (Queen Caroline Street, W6 9PJ).

This will be our first in-person Collaborative Learning Event in nearly three years, and since then Covid has had a significant impact on health and social care services. We are inviting you to consider, how will you work differently to support the health and social care sectors as we recover from Covid?

We look forward to engaging with stakeholders, both new and old, to exemplify how we are working differently to ‘Build Back Better’. There will be interactive opportunities to hear about our work and engage with it. We are excited to come together and welcome you to make plans for progress, engage with you to guide and improve our shared learning.

About the theme

Covid has had a devastating impact on health and social care services, from waiting times to the psychological impact on frontline professionals. In September 2021, the UK Government released a new plan for health and social care.1 This included plans to tackle the Covid backlogs and significant investments to reform adult social care. As we look to recover from

the pandemic, we need to consider how we can work together to ‘Build Back Better’ with a focus on high quality health and social care services and improving population health. In our Collaborative Learning Event, we will explore the following questions:

· What are the priorities and risks for the health and social care systems in the recovery from Covid?

· What do we need to do differently to ensure that the health and social care systems can bounce back from the pandemic?

· How can we support the health and social care systems to work differently to respond to and meet the needs of local populations?

Who is the event for?

Open to those who have an interest in translating evidence into practice and achieving improvements in health behaviours and population health, including but not limited to:

· Patients/carers

· GP’s/Practice Managers/Practice Nurses

· NHS provider staff

· Higher Education Institutions partners

· NIHR Partners

· Relevant third sector organisations/community champions

· Local authority/ Social care partners/Public Health Directors and Commissioners

Which women in Northwest London are getting their flu vaccines in pregnancy? Sharing our research findings

A workshop with NIHR ARC Northwest London to help understand how we can best communicate the findings of our research into flu vaccination during pregnancy.

Date: Wednesday 19 January 2022

Time: 10:30-11:30am

Location: Online (via Zoom)


We would like to invite you to an online Zoom meeting about flu vaccines for pregnant women.

Parents and families in Northwest London and also health and social care professionals who may work with families in Northwest London are invited.

We are a team of researchers at Imperial College London and we have recently done a study looking at which pregnant women are getting their flu vaccine in Northwest London. We want to get feedback on how we can make sure our research makes a difference to the health and care of women and their babies in Northwest London.


The purpose of this work is to improve health and care for women and their children living in Northwest London, and we’d like to speak with members of the public, and those working with pregnant women, to receive input from our community.

Why is this important?

In the UK, like other countries, pregnant women are advised to be vaccinated against flu. This is because pregnant women are at higher risk of being seriously ill if they get flu. The vaccine is a safe and effective way to protect women and their unborn babies.

We are researchers from Imperial College London and we are doing research into which pregnant women in Northwest London get the flu vaccine and which don’t. We want to improve healthcare for women in Northwest London and increase the number of women who get protected against flu.

How will it work?

You can help by joining our event will be online using Zoom. We will introduce the issue, share our findings, and give you an opportunity to feed back to us on how we might best communicate these findings to support improvement in health and care for women in Northwest London and beyond.


Some questions you might like to think about during the session:


  • What do you understand about our research?

  • Which parts make sense to you, and which are confusing?

  • What’s missing, and are there any unnecessary parts?


Who are we?

A group of researchers based at Imperial College London and funded by the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR). Our Applied Research Collaboration (ARC), Northwest London, is a programme of research aiming to improve health and care through applied health research.


Book you space

We would be delighted if you are able to attend – please let us know if you will be attending by emailing Gloria Ihenetu on: g.ihenetu@imperial.ac.uk, with subject 'Flu vaccines in pregnancy workshop'.


If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch on the above email address.
