Shared Learning Award
A new Shared Learning Award has been established to celebrate the best submissions to the NICE shared learning database. Shortlisting for the award and its presentation will form one of the highlights of the NICE annual conference in December.
The NICE shared learning database, launched in December 2006, offers the opportunity for organisations to learn from each other's experiences in implementing NICE guidance. It already contains lots of examples of local activity and it is hoped the award will encourage even more submissions.
How will the Shared Learning Award work?
- Twelve examples from the shared learning database will be shortlisted for the Award.
- We will work with shortlisted entrants to produce a poster that will be displayed at the NICE conference.
- From the 12 shortlisted entries, four finalists will be selected to give a 10-15 minute presentation on their entry at the conference.
- A judging panel will select one of the four as the overall winner.
What's on offer?
- The winner will receive £1000 to help them implement NICE guidance within their organisation. The three runners up will each receive £100 to support implementation.
- The four finalists will each be offered two free places at NICE's conference.
- The remaining eight shortlisted entrants will each receive one free place at the conference plus 25% off a second delegate place.
What are we looking for?
We're looking for submissions that show how organisations have successfully met the challenges - and overcome the pitfalls - of putting NICE guidance into practice. Each submission must be written in jargon-free, easy to understand English.
Perhaps you've come up with an innovative system to assess the relevance of NICE guidance to your organisation - or to flag up specific recommendations to a particular department. Perhaps you would like to tell people about the type of problems your clinical or public health team faced when trying to implement a particular set of recommendations.
'The examples people submit could be very simple, or highly complex,' explains Nicola Bent, Associate Director, NICE Implementation Systems.
‘They might have worked brilliantly or fallen at the first hurdle - it doesn't matter. We want to offer a resource that shares learning, not necessarily best practice. People can submit anything that they think their colleagues across the NHS and public health community might find useful when implementing NICE guidance.'
The deadline for entries is 31 September 2007.
