Launch of NICE into Action webinar series for Allied Health Professionals (AHPs)

Evaluating, improving and evidencing the impact of AHP services in health, care and wellbeing is a priority for AHPs into Action, so we’re delighted to share the launch of our NICE into Action webinars.

This series of four webinars from NHS Improvement, NICE and NHS England will help AHPs to:

  • Understand and engage with NICE’s work
  • Influence guideline development
  • Take structured approaches to implementing guidelines and using quality standards
  • Support greater uptake of NICE guidance to improve care and outcomes for patients and service-users.

We will also profile a number of AHPs involved in NICE guideline development and implementation.

The webinars will take place once a month, over lunchtime:

How Clinical Academic Careers can benefit the whole NHS – A guide to the ICA programme for NHS managers

Recorded on Tuesday 12 December 2017. Managers of aspiring and developing clinical academics can find it challenging to release staff to participate in research programmes, even when funding is provided to support backfill, particularly in speciality areas.

This special one-hour webinar was specifically aimed at managers of clinical academics/aspiring clinical academics and demonstrates how managers have made clinical academic career development work for their departments and their staff.

The webinar was presented by

Professor Joanne Cooper, Assistant Director of Nursing (Research, Innovation and Professional Regulation) at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, Visiting Professor at Coventry University and Senior Research Fellow, University of Nottingham.

Pete Thompson, Assistant Director at the NIHR Trainees Coordinating Centre
