Tuesday 10 March, 9.00 – 1.00pm, Hackney Town Hall

Over 270 staff, governors, service users and external partners came together in Hackney for a half-day conference. They came to share some of the work that has taken place in the first year of the Quality Improvement programme.

 Poster Presentations

We were delighted to have 37 QI project teams presenting their work as posters. During the event we asked people to vote for their favourite poster with the winning team awarded a lunch on the QI team. When the votes were in two projects were tied so we awarded the prize to both –  Reducing pressure ulcers in the Extended Primary Care Team, and Improving Physical Health: Weight management on adult inpatient wards at Newham Centre for Mental Health. Congratulations to these two teams, and thank you to everyone else who submitted a poster.
