F5: Tackling population health together in Europe –
what have we learned from the Health Improvement Alliance Europe

Wednesday 22 June 2022 | 15:00-16:00

Format: Workshop
Stream: Population and Public Health

Welcome to a European learning café, hosted by the IHI Health Improvement Alliance Europe (HIAE). Join the movement for population health, learn how improvement methods are applied to tackle shared challenges including health equity.

Meet leaders partnering in the HIAE workstream for population health. Together, we will explore successful strategies and share bright spots from around Europe – measuring what matters; working with and for the population; and making health improvement everyone’s business.

The HIAE is a community of leaders, dedicated to continuous learning and identification of best practices and new models from within and outside health care.

After this session, participants will be able to:

  • Understand how strategies and approaches impact positively on population health across a range of demographic groups

  • Consider a range of quality improvement methods which support population health improvement work

  • Explore how public health issues relate to their own context and consider the opportunity to influence improvement activity to impact on outcomes
