2nd International Symposium on Healthcare Improvement and Innovation

Date: Wednesday 29 June to Thursday 30 June, 2016.

Venue: Monash University Prato Centre, Prato (near Florence), Tuscany, Italy

Theme: Healthcare System of the Future: Achieving System-Wide Collaboration for Innovation

We are pleased to announce the keynote speaker for this year's symposium is Dr Helen Bevan, Chief Service Transformation Officer, NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement. She will also be a convenor at this year's ECR and Doctoral workshop.

The second International symposium on healthcare improvement and innovation builds on the success of a previous symposium and workshops (the first on healthcare improvement and innovation held in 2014, a workshop on innovations in health delivery and management held in 2013, and a workshop on lean in healthcare held in 2011). This symposium provides an avenue for international healthcare professionals, researchers, and academics to network, share, discuss, and learn about the latest issues relating to healthcare improvement and innovation. Some of the issues include:

  • Sector citizenship
  • Integrating health and social care systems
  • Sharing health information across organisational and occupational boundaries
  • Co-design and building partnerships and collaboration

If you are interested in delivering a presentation at the symposium, we welcome you to submit an extended abstract (1000 to 1500 words) for consideration. Please visit Call for Extended Abstracts page for more information.

The symposium will include special sessions organised by Newcastle University (UK) ('Health Heresies'), the Warwick-Monash Healthcare Alliance ('Innovation & Redesign'), and panel discussion on the Victorian (Australia) redesign journey.
