HAELO - What is Improvement Science Anyway?

On the Tuesday 25 September 2018, North West Employers, in partnership with the NHS North West Leadership Academy, brought you Improvement with a Difference, an Organisational Raid, hosted by Haelo, an innovation and improvement science centre that uses fun and interactive training sessions to support improvement in the NHS.

This raid provided us with a range of interactive workshops teaching the importance of data measurement and visualisation to help understand real changes resulting in real improvement. We learnt what the PDSA change cycle means (Plan, Do, Study, Act) by creating Mr Potato Head models to fully immerse ourselves in the process to run quick, iterative tests of change. The model focuses on three questions for improvement; what are you trying to achieve, how will a change be an improvement and what changes will create improvement.
