Description

Improving Quality of Women’s Health Care aims to inspire and enthuse healthcare professionals to further efforts to improve quality and safety within their obstetrics and gynaecology services. This one-day event is an excellent opportunity to hear from national leads and experts in improvement science on the latest research and initiatives in the plenary sessions, and take home skills and knowledge through participation in interactive workshops.Building on the success of previous events, delegates will be able to choose the workshop sessions that best meet your current interests and needs. Workshops will cover a wide range of topics including: Insights from behavioural science for improvement work; Human factors approaches to team work for better communication and responding to patient safety issues; Current issues around consent in women’s health care; Engaging with service users to take improvement further and faster; Why and how to evaluate QI work; and a Primer in skills for improvement, including the power of measurement.To showcase the range of work the specialty is involved with, you are invited to submit abstracts on improvement projects, research or audit you have been involved with. A new feature this year will be fast-paced presentations of the five best abstracts submitted for the oral category, together with themed poster walk-rounds during the networking lunchbreak and a prize for the best poster.The programme will offer fresh ideas and insights on improvement work, whether you are a committed and experienced improver, or interested to get started on improvement work.This is a multidisciplinary event aimed at obstetricians, gynaecologists, midwives, gynaecology nurses, and clinical governance and risk leads.
