Video celebrates Learning From Excellence event


Posted on 11 December 2017 (Permalink)

A video covering a recent sell-out conference celebrating an initiative aimed at capturing and studying peer reporting excellence in healthcare is now available on the web. 

More than 250 delegates attended the Learning from Excellence (LfE) Community Event, with attendees coming from as far afield as Finland. Attendees share their experiences of LfE in the video, reflecting on the event and how they will apply LfE in their working lives to improve the safety and quality of compassionate care for patients.

LfE aims to identify, appreciate, study and learn from episodes of excellence in frontline healthcare. Other health and social care organisations in the NHS and beyond are also beginning to adopt the LfE approach in their areas of practice.

The LfE project has been running for three years and is led by Adrian Plunkett, Consultant Paediatric Intensivist at Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust and Emma Plunkett, Locum Consultant at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust. The LfE team believes that studying excellence in healthcare can create new opportunities for learning and improving team resilience, and the project is supported by Appreciating People and the West Midlands Patient Safety Collaborative.
