Implementation and Evaluation Workshops

At NIHR CLAHRC Greater Manchester, we hold workshops for professionals who are interested in learning about how to conduct evaluations. Delivered by our Director, Professor Ruth Boaden and Senior Research Fellow, Paul Wilson, one such workshop, which focussed on how to design robust evaluations, was held for Salford Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in September and October 2016.

Professor John Øvretveit, one of the world’s leading experts in health service, implementation and quality research, ran a workshop on project evaluation designed specifically for the NIHR CLAHRC Greater Manchester team.

The interactive workshop was designed to enable our team to:

  • Learn more about how to plan, implement and report complex evaluations
  • Hear about each others’ work
  • Network with colleagues across our different themes of work
  • Get feedback on the design of our ongoing evaluations from Professor Øvretveit and other workshop participants.

The event concluded with a lecture from Professor Øvretveit titled ‘Evaluating quality improvements and implementation’ (view slides) and an open Q&A session. Professor Øvretveit kindly agreed for his lecture, open Q&A and a private Q&A to be filmed. The lecture and open Q&A can be viewed below, and a series of short Q&As are also available.
