The Community Involvement and Workforce Innovation team provides support to internal Oxford AHSN programmes, to colleagues in other AHSNs and to our partner organisations. All health and care innovation is ultimately about people: those who receive care and those who provide it. Considering the needs, preferences and values of both patients and staff is essential to sustained adoption of new ways of working and delivering care. To achieve this we focus on:
- Helping to understanding population health inequalities
- Helping to develop patient and public involvement and coproduction plans, including understanding what matters to patients and their experience of health and care
- Considering the impact of our programmes on the people who work in health and care and what they might need to support innovation
- Considering where innovation might be needed to support health and care staff, and the organisations they work for, to deliver the highest quality care
We can help by giving advice, working with teams or carrying out work on their behalf across all AHSN activities.
