** This event has now passed **


NHIP Academy is pleased to welcome Professor Lindsay Pennington and Professor Annette Hand to present at their Fellows Forum event on Wednesday 28 February 2024.

The Fellows Forum is a peer-to-peer support network for health and care researchers and offers a programme of events to share best practice and network.

This workshop will be a dynamic discussion about impact and influence. The session will consider different types of impact including impact on care, education and wider policy, as well as pathways to impact at different levels and techniques for influence. Taking a strategic approach to impact can be beneficial to achieve long term research and career goals, so this session will also consider the importance of building in time and resource to collect and disseminate evidence of impact.

Following this introduction to impact and influence, Lindsay and Annette will facilitate group discussions around live impact examples. Submitting an impact idea for discussion at the workshop is not mandatory, but attendees are encouraged to bring along their own examples of projects they are working on and ideas for impact that can be discussed in small groups during the second part of the session.

To register, please visit here.
