Please note, these sessions are designed as 'train the trainer' - and will equip attendees with the abilities to hold their own RAMPPS training, in their own organisations. Each candidate will receive a copy of the RAMPPS trainer manual and certificate of attendance. The places on the training are free. There are 12 places available for each two-day course, and the learning outcomes for each day are below:
The Hampshire and Isle of Wight Sustainability & Transformation Partnership is hosting a Digital Conference to showcase some of the key digital initiatives which are supporting care providers across the Partnership, delivering real benefits to staff and patients.This invitation-only session will bring together leaders from the care provider community, business managers, clinicians and innovators. In addition, key IT suppliers working with the Hampshire and the Isle of Wight Partnership will be in attendance to demonstrate their collaborative solutions and how these are already contributing towards a more sustainable future of healthcare provision.OBJECTIVE: The audience will gain a deeper insight into the current digital solutions in use across their locality. As well as the opportunity to see the technology and innovations, the audience will hear from and have the opportunity to question the decision makers and influencers in this area, including the leadership team, clinical staff, and the techies! Sharing this work will allow the broader workforce to better understand the challenges faced by the Partnership's Digital Team and the benefits innovation can deliver now and in future. The event aims to encourage the audience to share tools and insights with colleagues and leave them feeling supported, enthused and empowered to become more involved.CONTENT: The final details of the agenda will be confirmed at the end of January. Content for the day will include keynote talks from Executive Team Members of the Partnership, as well as updates on digital innovation across all areas of care.Delegates should aim to arrive no later than 9.30am and the day's activities will conclude at 4pm.Please note places are limited for the Digital Conference - there are many organisations requiring representation and although this is an invitation-only you should register your place as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
Confusion, complexity and delay in resolving information governance issues in relation to data sharing is so normalised that unless this is called out and resolution made a real priority then STP and LDS ambitions round systems of care, population health management and enabling of a learning health system will flounder.
There is a need for a short-life taskforce with dedicated staff charged with developing an action plan which:
- Reviews current data-sharing agreements
- Maps current real-world processes for IG against stated processes, and identifies common use cases to prioritise for action
- Proposes future state IG (infrastructure, policy) and processes (e.g. data sharing agreements, privacy impact statements) and identifies the enablers needed to embed and sustain these
- Looks to identifying system-wide data agreements that allow overarching approvals enabling local modification instead of widespread local duplication
- Futureproofs this work in the context of national policy and regulatory changes e.g. General Data Protection Regulations and consultation on a national consent model
Hampshire and the Isle of Wight STP in conjunction with Wessex Academic Health Science Network wish to invite you to a series of information governance workshops to achieve these goals:
Workshop One: Agree the Vision for Data Sharing, Monday 12th March
Workshop Two: Mapping the Priority Data Flows and Linkage, Friday 16th March
Workshop Three: Identifying Data Blockers and Finding Solutions, Friday 23rd March
The event will support you to run events during the awareness week and learn more about the campaign. They will also look at local action and what's happening in your region, hear from industry experts and give plenty of opportunities to network.Agendas are currently being developed but will include:
The event will enable you to share good sustainable practice, meet like-minded people from your region or learn where to start with some great case studies
The events are free for NHS, Public health, social care and other related public sector organisations.
This is the third evaluation symposium for the Happy, Healthy, at Home vanguard in the North East Hampshire and Farnham area. At this event, we will cover:

Professor Carl May
would like to invite you to his Exaugural Lecture
services—like other sectors of the economy—have been called on to mobilise
technological and organisational innovations as a means of escaping the consequences
of epidemiological and economic pressures. Understanding the dynamics of
innovation and implementation in complex, and often fragmented, healthcare
settings, calls for robust explanatory models. In turn, this call raises
important questions. What sort of processes can such models characterise and
explain? How generalisable can they be? How can they be applied?
my exaugural lecture, I will explore these questions in relation to a programme
of theory-building in applied heath research. This has led to the development
of the explanatory model of the implementation of healthcare innovations that
has become Normalisation Process Theory (NPT). While more than 200 studies have
now applied NPT to problems in applied health research, it has always been
clear that one theory cannot do the whole job of accounting for implementation
processes and their effects on users. An important part of my work in
Southampton has been extending NPT to consider the impact of innovations and
the work that this brings to patients and caregivers (Burden of Treatment
Theory, BoT). The lecture will explore the ways that these problems have been
addressed through applied heath research—focused on my contributions to a
number of large complex intervention trials in the UK and elsewhere, and in a
major programme of empirical work supported by NIHR CLAHRC Wessex.
Showcasing national and local research we have an exciting programme including keynote speakers on health psychology, genomics and prioritisation in public health. Thanks to an excellent response to our call for abstracts we also have a full programme of local public health action workshops.Don’t miss this opportunity to network with public health colleagues across Wessex and hear about innovation in research and practice. Places can also be reserved for colleagues in local authorities and NHS Trusts to share the good practice in public health across Wessex.Chairs and Keynote Speakers include:
The conference is FREE to delegates from Hampshire & IOW and Dorset so reserve your place now!Further programme details and instructions will be sent with confirmation of your place.
A one day face-to-face interactive course that provides a short, sharp burst of the basic essentials required to be conversant in contemporary Medical Genomics. These will include clinical case studies of patients and their families.
The course will be geared towards specialist and non-specialist nurses, GPs and the wider group of scientists and health professionals who are not necessarily directly involved with applications of medical genomics but require a basic knowledge.
Genomics is a complex area and this course will be designed to ‘demystify’ its utility and cut through specialist terminology. The course will be delivered by leading academics and healthcare professionals and will cover genome structure through to understanding a typical genomics clinical report that could appear on a patient’s notes.
Teaching will have a strong activity and workshop component with meaningful every day examples to encourage strong understanding of basic principles. This Primer in Genomic Medicine will not require prior genomics or genetics knowledge.
There are no assessments for this course. All participants will be issued with a certificate of attendance.
£250 for a one day RCN-accredited workshop.
Funding may be able available through Health Education England for NHS employees.
Before or in parallel with your course application to the University, NHS staff should apply for financial support via HEE’s website (genomic medicine CPPD funding section)
