Training and Events

The training and events programme has been designed to support the development of staff in intelligence functions in the Midlands, alongside a wider cohort of analysts and decision-makers working in health and care organisations in each system.

Training and events are delivered through structured development programmes, short courses and a series of events – including INSIGHT, our annual festival of learning and sharing – REGISTER for INSIGHT 2022 HERE! (and see last year’s recordings here).  The training programme is grouped into four key themes:

  • Improving decision-making practice – providing system leaders with practical tools & techniques for making better, more analytically-informed decisions
  • Strengthening analytical capability – building technical skills to undertake high-quality strategic analysis
  • Developing analytical leaders – fostering the skills analysts need to work more closely and effectively with decision-makers
  • Moving beyond the numbers – ensuring decisions are informed by findings from a range of disciplines

We also share information on a range of topics in the fortnightly Midlands Analyst Network Huddlesclick here to request to join the Midlands Analyst Network – we welcome new members!  And see the other communities of practice (CoP) for details of how to get involved with the Knowledge Mobilisation and Evaluation CoPs.

"We need to inspire analysts across the NHS, value their input, ask them what questions we should be asking and seek their thoughts on how we can maximise the benefit of their work." Read @andrzeio's latest piece in @HSJnews:
