DHACA-Day II – 7th October 2014

The second DHACA Day took place on 7th October at Anfield Stadium in Liverpool. The event combined the development of the Special Interest Groups (SIGs) started on the first DHACA-Day with presentations from local healthcare improvements.

The Liverpool Mi dallas project gave a set of presentations on the challenges they have faced, combined with their achievements to date. Later in the day, we heard from the North West Coastal Academic Health Strategic Network on the role of AHSNs and how they are already driving beneficial change in the North West.

The principal purpose of the day though was to advance the SIG development, in two stages: firstly through ten-minute pitches by all the active SIGs describing progress to date and plans for the future. Then an opportunity for new members to meet with existing members to develop further plans, including an initial set of projects.

Location: Anfield Stadium, Liverpool
