Masterclass: Measurement for Improvement

We are delighted to announce that this half day masterclass will be led by Mike Davidge, on behalf of AQuA

This masterclass is open to all, but will be particularly relevant to those in finance or business intelligence and analysis roles working in individual organisations or across health and care systems. 

Mike joined the NHS in 1979 setting aside temporarily (as he then thought) a career in industry; over 30 years later he is still working in the NHS. In the early 1980s as part of IACC, he was jointly responsible for creating the first national performance indicators and between 1986 and 1992 pioneered reduced waiting times in England and Wales. Mike then became the Analysis Director for the Modernisation Agency in 2001 and left the MA in February 2005 to take up a role as Director of Analysis and Modelling within the Leeds health economy. Recently, he was Head of Measurement at the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement in 2009 until its closure in March 2013 and he continues to be involved part time with 1000 Lives Improvement in Wales as the Head of Improvement Methodology.

Mike will explore different types of measurement, and explain why measuring for improvement differs from measuring for performance.  He will introduce a 7-step model, and discuss how specialist staff can support the front line teams to measure and evidence their service improvement and redesign work.

Please note that tea/coffee will be available from 12.30pm for a prompt 1pm start.
