AstraZeneca non-promotional programme

The ChangeACADEMY is offered to the NHS by AstraZeneca as Donated Goods & Services (DOGS). AstraZeneca has initiated and funded this programme.

Programme Overview

The ChangeACADEMY is a non-promotional programme which will be offered by AstraZeneca to both clinical and non-clinical personnel who represent NHS Healthcare Organisations (HCO). Delegates must be able to influence system level change across one (or more) of the following pathways - Asthma, COPD, Heart Failure, Amyloidosis, Bleed Pathway (GI & Stroke), Type 2 Diabetes, Chronic Kidney Disease, Lung Cancer, Breast Cancer and would like to develop their skills to implement change for the benefit of patients. The ChangeACADEMY is delivered by a multidisciplinary faculty of NHS leaders who have themselves delivered system wide pathway change and are passionate about change methodology. The programme has 30 places which will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis and is offered to the NHS through the Donated Goods & Services framework.

Aims & Objectives

To provide a programme of education to equip delegates to become future change leaders and deliver strategic system-level change to improve the quality of care for patients in their locality and NHS Healthcare Organisation. The aim of the programme is to upskill delegates to deliver national priorities and frameworks that set the standard of patient care which their services should attain. They will be able to understand the principles of delivering strategic change, how it can be used to benefit patients across their locality and removing unwarranted variations in the care delivered.
The programme will enhance patient care by equipping NHS Leaders to make positive changes to the patient pathway which should include and impact:
  • Identification of at-risk patients
  • Timely referral & diagnosis
  • Timely access to diagnostic tests
  • Medicine and treatment optimisation
  • Reducing health inequality
