Improvement Network: April 2023


This ongoing network is open to all staff (clinical and non-clinical) in the health and care system who want to drive improvements for their service – in particular those responsible for improvement including managers, practitioners and project and programme managers.


Patient Safety Investigation Response Framework (PSIRF): improvement focus 

For this session, we will be joined by Jemma Barton, Head of Quality Improvement and Effectiveness from North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust and Dr Ruth O'Dowd, Consultant Anaesthetist and Associate Medical Director for Patient Safety & Quality Improvement from North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust.

The Patient Safety Investigation Response Framework (PSIRF) is coming and replacing the previous Serious Incident Framework (SIF), and organisations must have implemented their Trust plan by Autumn 2023, but how much do you know about the new framework and how does this link to improvement? 

The improvement network has been set up to support North and West Cumbria health and care services to come together to learn about improvement, share experiences and gain support and improvement coaching expertise.

Aims and outcomes are:

  • Network with other improvement professionals in health and care
  • Build knowledge of improvement practice
  • Learn new improvement tools and methodology to use in everyday work
  • Be supported to undertake your own improvements
  • Be able to measure your improvements to show impact on patient/service user care

Registrants will be sent a calendar invite containing the Teams link to access the meeting a few days prior to the session.
