Professor Maxine Power to join us in Sydney in September, 2017

ACHS, in partnership with ACHSM, are delighted to announce that Professor Maxine Power will be joining us as a keynote speaker for our Joint Congress.

As the Director of Innovation and Improvement Science at Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, an integrated provider of hospital, community and primary care services, Professor Power provides strategic leadership, improvement expertise and delivery support for large-scale change programmes delivered locally in Salford. 

She has created a rich reputation by working with a range of regional partners; Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC) and Greater Manchester Academic Health Science Network (GM AHSN) and nationally (National Health Service England and NHS QUEST) and will share her knowledge and learnings with us.

In recent years Salford Royal has partnered with Salford Clinical Commissioning Group and Salford City Council in joint improvement venture Haelo, a centre with expertise in digital connectivity and building capability in improvement science and which hosts improvement experts, clinicians and researchers. And it is from this venture that Professor Power will share some of the bigger moments she has faced, under the congress theme of‘The winds of change – adjust your sails’.

As the Managing Director, Professor Power delivers operational leadership to Haelo, which has the primary purpose of improving population health and healthcare for the Salford residents. We are excited to have Professor Power lead the speaker line-up at what promises to be a highly educational congress.
