Innovation Adoption Champions rapid insight events

By February 16, 2023No Comments

NHS England’s Innovation, Research and Life Sciences (IRLS) team/Health Education England are working with Wessex Academic Health Science Network and other partners to scope and develop a national education programme to enhance innovation adoption and empower a culture of innovation across the health, social care and voluntary workforce.

Join them online for a rapid insight event designed to be completed in just one hour.

Proven innovation enhances services and health outcomes, yet there is an absence of consistent messaging about innovation adoption and why it is central to wellbeing and care. It is known that people working in health, social and voluntary care often require support to increase their capability and confidence to adopt innovation, yet access to consistent quality training from one source is currently limited.
Staff have said that they:

  • are ready to embrace innovation but feel unsure about the process
  • can’t find high-quality information about innovation adoption that’s relevant to them
  • are concerned that they need specific skills.

This event will bring colleagues together from across the system, including those who have been involved in this topic previously and those who are new to it, to explore how this new programme can address the barriers and challenges to innovation adoption.

During the session

Rapid Insight events use an interactive and dynamic approach to gain insights from a wide group of stakeholders in a one-hour session using the Microsoft Teams platform. They are designed as a fast-paced and engaging way to encourage large amounts of information sharing in a short space of time. They would like everyone to be able to fully contribute during the session; your insights will inform a clear narrative, the development of a suite of bespoke specialist training materials and innovation adoption support.

They will also offer alternative methods of contribution should delegates wish to reflect and share further thoughts.

They are running the same session on two separate dates, to give you options to attend. Please reserve your place on your preferred date via their Eventbrite page at

Once registered they will be in touch with further information and joining instructions.
