Why Innovate? Improving CVD services in tough times

Speakers: ,

This sponsored workshop has been organised and funded by British Heart Foundation

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a significant contributor to unprecedented financial pressure and growing multimorbidity burden facing the NHS.  Supporting service innovation remains a core part of the BHF strategy and alongside applying the findings of research into usual care, is the best way of ensuring optimal patient outcomes.

This interactive session will describe four models of clinically effective, evidence-based and NICE-advocated approaches to improving CVD diagnosis and treatment. These solutions are cost effective, improve quality and address variations in care. The plethora of existing innovations can make it difficult for healthcare leaders and commissioners to decide where investment should go. In response, our ‘implementation into practice’ programme transparently and independently evaluates innovations across the CVD pathway.

You will have the opportunity to ask the health services engagement team how they supported implementation into clinical practice and discuss with them the lessons learnt.  This session invites you to share your experiences and explore our existing sustainable solutions specifically in relation to challenges in your area.  You will leave this session with answers about how you can deliver sustainable improvements to patient outcomes, service delivery and economic efficiency and know what support the BHF can provide.
