SW AHSN: Appreciative Inquiry Training Days
September 6 @ 9:00 am - September 7 @ 5:00 pm
In partnership with an innovative Liverpool based company Appreciating People and the West Midlands Patient Safety Collaborative, we are delighted to offer a two-day training programme for organisations interested in applying appreciative inquiry approaches to patient safety.
There is a growing interest in patient safety on approaches that emphasise learning from all incidents and areas, rather than focusing alone on when things go wrong. Recent examples of this include Learning from Excellence, a positive incident reporting tool developed by Dr Adrian Plunkett at Birmingham Children’s Hospital. Here is an example from a South West organisation of the benefits of applying the approach in their setting.

The training aims to introduce staff to a highly practical strength based way of working – combining Appreciative Inquiry and Positive psychology philosophies and techniques. The training covers the well-known organisational development applications of AI, including how this approach supports engagement, staff wellbeing and resilience.
