The strong relationship between network characteristics and operational success has been demonstrated. In the healthcare setting there is evidence that networks work in several ways in creating outcomes. In this half-day event, we will review our current knowledge of how social networks operate in healthcare settings and discuss ways forward for further enhancing our understanding. This seminar is for those involved in building clinical networks for patient safety, quality improvement or for research and development reasons. Whatever the role you have in clinical practice, we hope to share and learn together.
This event is part of a collaborative project between WEAHSN and the University of Bath, aiming to improve the management of social networks for creating positive outcomes within healthcare.
