CORE Learning Collaborative 27th April 2015
The CORE Learning Collaborative event was held at UCL on Monday 27th April 2015. It was an opportunity for staff from the teams and Trusts involved in the CORE Phase 4 Resource pack trial to get together and share their experiences of service improvement. The event happened 6 months in to the intervention period of the trial. Speakers from 9 of the 15 teams in the intervention arm of the study gave presentations explaining what their service improvement plans look like, and how they are working to achieve them. While the study is ongoing these presentations will only be available to teams in the intervention arm of the study, but will be made more widely available at the end of the study. We also had talks from Dr Geraldine Strathee, Clinical Director for Mental Health, NHS England, Professor Sonia Johnson and Dr Bryn Lloyd-Evans:
