CASC Learn at Lunch

Background

In the Summer of 2020 and in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, CASC decided to set up monthly Zoom meetings that we now affectionately refer to as our Learn at Lunch online events. These sessions are approximately one-hour in duration, free and open to all. Of course, you will need the relevant Zoom codes to participate. These are posted below and on our Twitter account (@cascleicester) Our first meeting took place on 6 August and was entitled ‘Are you paid the going rate?’ and had 40 attendees. Since then, we have tried to run a minimum of one meeting every month and interest in the sessions has rapidly increased with most events now generating between 80 and 120 attendees.

Future events and how to get involved

Rainbows Children's Hospice

We have just completed a highly successful series of Learn at Lunch sessions in the first six months of 2021. Recent sessions have focused on: what not to do in quality improvement, compassion in the workplace, human factors, how to better engage junior doctors in audit and QI, etc. If you missed any of these sessions, then you can watch them back. We are now in the process of planning our events for Autumn 2021 and we are delighted to announce that on 6 October Dr Rabia Imtiaz (Medical Director at Kettering Hospital) will be back with us. We are also hoping that on 20 October, Emma Challans (Executive Director of Culture and Improvement at Sherwood Forest Hospitals) will be speaking on career prospects beyond clinical audit. More information on future sessions will be shared soon. In addition to Learn at Lunch sessions, please book onto the second Auditorium event on 2 September. Auditorium is a collaboration with Healthcare Conferences UK and will allow us to spend more time exploring important subjects in more detail. The first event on 21 May examined how we can get the most out of national clinical audit and featured 4 exceptional external speakers. The session on the 2 September will focus on patient involvement in audit and we are delighted that Dawn Chamberlain (NHS England) is the keynote speaker. To book your place, click here 

Get involved

We are also eager to hear about what events you would like us to run as part of our Learn at Lunch sessions going forwards. If you have any suggestions, then do please get in touch via the above email. We are also keen to use the events as an opportunity to give others the chance to showcase their work, so if you or your team would like to lead a future session and/or present information, then do please get in touch.
