Improving healthcare quality through practice innovation
Taking account of the priority of the regional LETB around advanced and innovative practice, the redesign of NIHR health services and delivery research group to specifically focus on evaluating models of service organisation which have the potential to improve service effectiveness, efficiency and productivity as well as patient outcomes, this stream encompasses a number of activities focussedf around the evaluation of service innovations and operation (e.g. 4 tier structure, QIPP, advanced practice, service redesign, nurse led interventions, blurred boundary working, movement of services to primary care setting from secondary or tertiary settings). Notably, work in this stream includes the the evaluation of practice development and impact of education on practice (potentially using HEE EOF framework) and supports the work of those who are interested education research and the effect this has on professional behaviours and activities.
