Plymouth Institute of Health and Care Research (PIHR) have planned a series of workshops via Zoom around a number of areas that relate to and may support HIP2 thinking, and with the aim of creating a more regional approach to infrastructure redesign to take us into the next 20 years of healthcare provision in the South West.
You are very welcome to join us at any or all of these meetings.
- Monday 18 January, 11:00-13:00 - General introductory meeting
- Tuesday 19 January, 11:00-13:00 - Effective service design and planning to improve health outcomes
- Wednesday 20 January, 12:00-14:00 - Hospital design: achieving net zero carbon and improving patient experience, staff wellbeing/productivity
- Thursday 21 January, 11:00-13:00 - Digital infrastructure
Across all three themes, it is important to emphasis the role of public engagement. Most literature on good hospital design emphasises the importance of seeking wide input. Patients, families, medics, nurses, administrators and architects tend to look at issues through different lenses and there is great value in iteratively listening to feedback from different stakeholders. Knowledge exchange (KE) and public and patient involvement are areas in which the University of Plymouth excel and which are core parts of our mission. What might we be able to offer the region in supporting KE?Please email PIHRsupport@plymouth.ac.uk for more information and to register your attendance.
