CLIC Bitesize Workshops

We still have availability on two of our Bitesize workshops, focusing on Value Stream Mapping and Project Thinking.

Bitesize - Value Stream Mapping
This workshop is a short, 2 hour session for anyone wanting to find out more about Value Stream Mapping and how to focus on clinical and non-clinical value streams. Value Stream Mapping helps us to visualise and entire flow of our services and can act as a tool to identify and describe improvements. The workshop will be an opportunity to try out a practical value stream example, and will help you to reflect on how value stream mapping can be used in your work area to identify waste and maximise value. The workshop builds on process mapping techniques and demonstrate how mapping with key measurements can be used to develop a value stream. 

Bitesize - Project Thinking
This workshop is a short, 4 hour session designed to guide your team through the planning process of small to mid-scale improvements or projects.

During the session you will:

  • Gain tools that will aid in correctly defining the problem or issue
  • Identifying the current state
  • Considering your stakeholders and engagement
  • Planning your next steps

A successful improvement or project is highly dependent on effective planning and gaining the right support from stakeholders.  This workshop is an opportunity for your team to get the right tools to plan your improvement with support from improvement facilitators.

HPMA 2017 Awards...and the Winner is...


The Cumbria Learning and Improvement Collaborative (CLIC) collected their award for ‘Cross-sector Training’.
CLIC brings together health and care workers from all of Cumbria’s hospitals, community services, primary care and private care providers to offer training.

It brings people together to learn; building new networks and ensuring training is uniform and therefore valid if staff change jobs and organisations. It means staff are learning with colleagues from other organisations who can share different experiences, and the focus is very much on patient care and reflecting on experience, meaning staff are focused on improving all the time.

Following the success of a training programme for registered nurses, CLIC’s project provided the opportunity to deliver free clinical skill awareness workshops for all non-registered health and care support workers across the independent sector and NHS. It brought staff together from different organisations to share expertise, build networks, problem solve and build confidence.

What has the project achieved?

  • Between June 2016 and February 2017, 177 workshops were delivered
  • Over 1,300 different staff were trained from over 250 places of work
  • Staff made 1,5000+ promises to implement actions from the workshops.

Congratulations to our Clinical Skills team!
