E1: Energy for change: a critical force for quality improvement

Friday, 4th May
13:15-14:30

Energy for change is “The capacity and drive of a team, organisation or system to act and make the difference necessary to achieve its goals”. How can we create quality improvement efforts that surge with energy, that are an unstoppable force for positive change? In this session, we’ll explore different kinds of energy for change. Participants will analyse the energy levels in their current improvement initiatives and plan how to build them

After this session, participants will be able to:

  • Understand why igniting energy is a critical capability for leaders and change agents who are serious about quality

  • Discuss how to liberate the natural energy and vitality of service users, patients, families and staff for the cause of high quality care.

  • Take home a powerful framework for understanding, analysing and unleashing energy for change
