The power and benefits of collaboration with patients
What will it take to bring improvement from the margins to the mainstream?
The HSE is facing an unprecedented range of workforce, financial and performance pressures. Leaders locally and nationally need a strategic approach capable of maximising the impact and spread of the many promising HSE-led innovations, service improvements and new technologies. What does this really take to bring these innovations from the margins to the mainstream? Our panel explores different perspectives on how to tackle the challenge of prioritising improvement in a system under pressure.
