Innovation Champions – Identifying unmet clinical need and scoping solutions

Event details - Monday 25th of September 2017 - 10am to 1pm - At The Circle, 33 Rockingham Lane, Sheffield, South Yorkshire S1 4FW United Kingdom

Have you or your colleagues got a real issue with something at work? Piece of kit? Service? Process?

How do you know if it’s unique to your organisation?

How can you quantify and evidence the problem?

How do you create or identify a robust solution?

This interactive workshop for NHS staff covers the first three stops of ‘The Innovation Line’ (Please see below).  Through group exercises and working together we will explore:

  • What is a genuine unmet clinical need?
  • Why does it need to be widespread to have potentially big impact?
  • Observation is key
  • How not to generate solutions
  • Tools to help generate and fine tune solutions
  • Gathering your evidence to make a case

Delivered for the Yorkshire and Humber Innovation Champions Network, this practical workshop is free to staff from NHS organisations who are members of the Yorkshire & Humber AHSN and/or Medipex.  If you have colleagues who have an interest in innovation and would like to hear more about the network, please invite them along.

How & Why We Protect Innovative Ideas

Event details: Monday 25th of September 2017 - 2pm to 4pm - At The Circle, 33 Rockingham Lane, Sheffield, South Yorkshire S1 4FW United Kingdom

Staff within the NHS are often best placed to generate and develop new solutions to unmet clinical needs.  However, the importance of protecting these ideas, and the ways and means of doing so, is often overlooked.  ‘How and why we protect innovative ideas’ offers an introduction into the complex world of intellectual property and the importance of asserting ownership of your ideas.  It offers essential learning for new Innovation Champions and serves as a good reminder for those who are already involved.
