08/10/2014 12:00 - 16:30

Performance management in health and public services

10/10/2014

This interactive workshop at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium will enable you to learn more about the controversial area of performance management including strategy mapping, the Balanced Scorecard and the Public Sector Scorecard. The latter is an outcome-focussed performance management framework based on a culture of improvement, innovation and learning rather than a top-down blame culture. It has been used in healthcare in Canada, Chile, China, Saudi Arabia and South Africa as well as in Europe. The workshop will include several in-depth case studies and participants will be encouraged to apply the concepts to their own organisations or departments. The worksop will be led by Max Moullin, author of the book Delivering Excellence in Health and Social Care and an experienced workshop facilitator and plenary speaker.

14/10/2014 10:00 - 16:00

There is still a significant opportunity to improve hospital lengths of stay (LoS) through improvements in internal processes and the development of alternative services. There is often significant variation in LoS, even for patients with similar conditions, and wide variations in the proportion of patients with extended stays, suggesting that improvements could be made to reduce LoS.
