WEBINAR: Learning from COVID-19: The conditions for change in building resilient health systems

What conditions have enabled dramatic change in health and care during COVID-19? How can we hold on to what has worked in the South West, and use this learning to adapt to future challenges?  

On 12 August 2020 the South West Academic Health Science Network (SW AHSN) is hosting an opportunity for health and care practitioners to come together to:

  • Learn what has worked to enable change in the South West
  • Consider what will help to create a resilient health and care system
  • Build networks and develop learning structures to continue sharing of learning 
  • Spread ideas and innovation through your work and across sectors

Come and hear from practitioners currently sharing their learning through the SW AHSN:

  • Dr Tamsyn Anderson (Cornwall Foundation NHS Partnership Trust) on establishing community assessment and treatment units to support frail patients. 
  • Hannah McDonald (One Northern Devon) on enabling ongoing community participation in the evolution of local health care systems. 
  • Jon Siddall and Sarah Robens (SW AHSN) on the eight conditions that have enabled rapid change in health and care systems.

Join facilitated breakout sessions and share how you are using recent knowledge to move forward from crisis to responsive and adaptive health and care. Explore together: 

  • What enables us to be able to respond to a crisis? 
  • What enables our system to deliver core services, whilst responding to threats?
  • How can diversity of people, projects and problems contribute to resilience?
  • How can we continue to communicate and share learning with each other?
  • What will make systems adaptation more likely in the future?

What’s next?

This event is part of the SW AHSN’s rapid learning programme and our work to help the region share and develop adaptive practice emerging from COVID-19. 

Following this webinar, the SW AHSN intends to provide further events and opportunities in the autumn to allow you to share your learning with each other, and for us to share what we have learnt from you and our work with our partners. 

We want to create on ongoing shared learning experience that is useful to you, and therefore welcome your input in designing these sessions during this webinar. 

*In running the pilot, the SW AHSN has opted to use Zoom as the tool most suitable for facilitating this session. We realise that Zoom will not suit all participants and therefore will consider feedback from you, and others not able to attend in order to inform the platform and format of our future events.
