Sweeney collaborative: children and families (London)

23 September 2020 to 31 March 2021

A number of organisations told us that they wanted to take part in our Sweeney collaborative on children and families with Alder Hey but did not know about it in time, so we have decided to run a further collaborative on the same theme in London, to begin in Autumn 2020.


Event details

Location

Point of Care Foundation headquarters at CAN Mezzanine, 7–14 Great Dover Street, London SE1 4YR

A number of organisations told us that they wanted to take part in our Sweeney collaborative on children and families with Alder Hey but did not know about it in time, so we have decided to run a further collaborative on the same theme in London, to begin in Autumn 2020.

Event details

We will work with a number of teams from NHS organisations to equip them with skills and support to carry out patient-centred service design. The teams will come together to learn these methods, teach and learn from each other.

  • Learning event 1: 23rd September 2020
  • Learning event 2: December 2020 (tbc)
  • Celebration and showcasing event: March 2021 (tbc)

Learning events will take place at the CAN Mezzanine in Borough, London SE1.

What’s on offer?

  • Structured training in patient-centred service design techniques
  • Collaborative learning events to create space for teams to work together and learn from others
  • Tailored teaching from our expert faculty, including both clinical leaders and service users
  • Written, video and audio materials to support the learning
  • Ongoing coaching and mentoring from accredited personal development coaches
  • A strong track record in working in the care of children and families

We hold two one-day master classes and a ‘celebration day’ to showcase projects and share learning.

Alongside these, over a six-month period, each team will have access to up to 20 hours of support from experienced improvement coaches. Our programmes are backed up by two webinars and provision of online resources. Your team will receive up to 35 hours of training and support over the course of the programme.
