Welcome to the Boost learning and improvement community events page. Here you can find information about upcoming events for like minded people across the integrated care system in the North East and North Cumbria.
Events are designed to provide you with opportunities to connect with others, trigger those light bulb moments, working together to find another way for some of the biggest health and care challenges in our region.
A great opportunity exists to build on our proud history of improvement in this region, using lived experiences to drive forward change. Join us on this journey to make a real difference to the lives of people in our communities.
The first learning and improvement community event was held in September 2022. It brought people together with a clear commitment and enthusiasm for change, to move at pace, and to share learning and work collectively across health and care, to support those who need help the most.
With a focus on continuous improvement and learning being at the heart of this community, the Boost events programme aims to help tackle some of the key issues being faced right now in health and care.
You can watch highlights of our first face to face event here.
Over 200 people joined the summit on discharge in March 2023. The online event brought local, regional, and international colleagues together to share the challenges of achieving safe, timely and reliable transfers out of hospital, to gain insight into people's experiences and stories, and to take time to think about how we can collectively improve care for all people across the region.
It was widely accepted that the waits some people experience to leave hospital is unacceptable – affecting patients, families, carers, health and care systems and its staff. There was a real energy from participants to change these patient experiences. It was also clear that this is everyone's responsibility.
