As we move from the immediate crisis response into the recovery period, we are faced with new challenges. How do we stop crisis-specific innovations? How can we amplify new approaches that improve care, letting go of practices that are no longer fit for purpose? And how do we restart aspects of usual care? We will explore these issues and others in a series of online conversations.

These conversations are organised by the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) South London and the Health Innovation Network, who work in partnership to improve health and social care services in south London and beyond, drawing on implementation and improvement science. Both organisations also work closely with King’s Health Partners, an Academic Health Sciences Centre in London.

What will the conversations cover?

The conversations will cover practice-based examples to explore how the fields of implementation and improvement science can be practically useful in navigating the complexity of transforming services in the Covid-19 recovery period (and beyond).

Who are these conversations for?

You could be a clinician, practitioner, manager or commissioner working in health and social care who is interested in or grappling with the challenge of navigating the immediate response and recovery to Covid-19. You want practical, evidence-based advice to questions such as: how do we implement change, measure its impact, and decide whether to sustain or decommission change?

When and how will these conversations run?

Each conversation will be held online using Zoom during a lunchtime (12.00-12.45pm). The conversations will include a brief introduction of the participants, followed by a 15-20-minute presentation or structured conservation, including a practitioner and/or expert in implementation and improvement. This will be followed by a 20-30-minute facilitated discussion and Q&A.
