Can behavioural factors influence the delivery and sustainability of improvement initiatives?

Part of the Quality Improvement Seminar series

26 Sep 2018 to 26 Sep 2018
10.15AM - 4.30PM
Stirling Court Hotel
Professor Robbie Foy University of Leeds, Dr Fabiana Lorencatto University College London and Professor Brian Williams Edinburgh Napier University

The introduction of new evidence-based practices often requires practitioners to change or adapt their behaviour, hence behavioural factors can impact on the success and sustainability of improvement interventions. This seminar will address ways to facilitate behaviour change to support improvement activities within health and social care settings.

This is an opportunity for academics, MPhil/PhD students, NHS, social care and improvement practitioners to come together for a day of networking, knowledge exchange and learning about behaviour change.

The seminar will explore:

  • Behavioural science theories and models and how to apply them to implementing change
  • Using behavioural change strategies to design quality improvement interventions
  • Barriers and facilitators to achieving sustainable behaviour change
  • How to measure, assess and evaluate behaviour change
