Event Details

Evaluation is an essential part of quality improvement and when done well it can help solve problems, inform decision making and build knowledge. While evaluation comes in many shapes and sizes, its key purpose is to help us to develop a deeper understanding of how best to improve health care.

The aim of this webinar is to provide an opportunity to gain an understanding of the crucial role that real-world evaluation plays and how capturing and using the right evidence is key to spreading a solution in the NHS.
