Adoption and spread of innovation in the NHS

19 January 2018 Webinar

Ensuring the adoption and spread of innovation is a challenge in any health system, but anecdotal evidence suggests that the English NHS finds it particularly challenging. In this live online event from 10 - 11am, the Kings Fund, in association with AHSNs, will discuss the findings from eight AHSN case studies that demonstrate the successful spread of innovation.  

All 15 AHSNs were invited to propose examples of succesful spread of innovation for inclusion in a report, and the Kings Fund selected eight case studies that were thought to best illustrate the effective approaches to supporting adoption and spread and also the challenges faced by innovators.  

The discussion will focus on the effective approaches to supporting adoption and spread, which includes: 

  • introduction of new technologies 
  • more proactive intervention
  • changes to staff roles
  • greater engagement of patients in their care
  • meeting a different underlying need.
