Improvement Programmes

The South West Academic Health Science Network (SW AHSN) has supported the adoption of improvement since its foundation.

We collaborate with other AHSNs, the Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care South West Peninsula (PenCLAHRC) and local stakeholders to identify evidence-based improvement opportunities that are ready to spread.

Below are some of the Improvement Programmes we have previously worked on or are still currently working on:

  • Acute Ischaemic Stroke
  • Analysing implementation in acute stroke and patient-initiated clinics (ASPIC)
  • Atrial Fibrillation
  • Medicines Optimisation
  • Mental Health
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • 100,000 Genomes Project
