On Tuesday 30th March, the Yorkshire and Humber Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) will host the Health Innovation Exchange. An event focusing on innovation in rehabilitation and its application within the NHS. 

Yorkshire & Humber AHSN is one of 15 AHSNs set up by NHS England to operate as the key innovation arm of the NHS. Across the country AHSNs act as a bridge between health care providers, commissioners, academia and industry. 

Colleagues from the Yorkshire and Humber AHSN have been huge supporters of the AWRC Wellbeing Accelerator, which has culminated in four of our participants being invited to talk at this online event. Aseptika LtdJT RehabSelfit and SWORD Health are amongst the companies speaking about their innovations, how they could be readily adopted in the NHS as well as the barriers they’ve experienced in the world of innovation in rehabilitation. 

What’s more, Dr Sally Fowler-DavisAssociate professor, Organisation in Health and Care and Research Portfolio Lead for the AWRC will be a keynote speaker at the event discussing how Rehabilitation is a driver for achieving better population health outcomes across a range of clinical and integrated services

Speaking of the event, Dr Fowler-Davis told us: 

"Tackling health inequalities and organising ourselves to improve population health is a clear imperative and rehabilitation services in partnership with industry are in an important position to enable patients and the public to access the support they need."

You can also listen out for our programme partner B.Braun and SHU researcher, lecturer and neuro-physiotherapist Nicky Snowdon who will be presenting her latest research project.
