NAAS Knowledge Exchange Visit

This week, Haelo in partnership with Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust welcomed international visitor Jenny Parr, Director of Infection Prevention and Control and Associate Director of Nursing, Waitemata District Health Board, New Zealand.

Jenny has been leading the ward accreditation programme at Waitemata District Health Board, modelled in part on the Nursing Assessment and Accreditation System programme, or NAAS for short. NAAS is the (not so) secret ingredient, which caused the unique transformation of nursing culture and safety at Salford Royal – owned and developed by nurses. The focus of the Information and Knowledge Exchange visit included a tour of Salford Royal complete with an expert NAAS session from Lead Nurse, Corporate Services, Fiona Morris.

Read our interview with Jenny Parr here and you can now book on to our Festival of Learning NAAS session here!

Human Factors Conference

This event is for anyone who wants to learn more about human factors. The unique inter-agency aspect will focus attention on the subject common to all- the non-technical, human factors skills.

hfTalks delivered by industry professionals will introduce human factors principles and illustrate application to the practical work place.

Researchers and lecturers will use their knowledge to show the evidence base for this subject, how it is continually developing and what we can learn from the latest studies into human performance.
