The HSCP National Innovation Fellowship Post which is now advertised on HSE website (www.hse.ie/spark). As communicated in the latest National HSCP Office newsletter (published Oct 21), this post has been created to provide an opportunity to lead, contribute and support innovation through the Spark Programme. It is a part-time role, providing a HSCP an exciting opportunity to develop their leadership skills whilst maintaining their clinical practice.
The Spark Innovation Programme runs multiple initiatives each year, namely Spark Seed Funding, Design on the Front line, the hospital innovation fund and the HSE-HIHI Spark Ignite competition. To date, HSCPs have demonstrated remarkable interest in innovation and change. In 2020, 112 HSCPs applied for Spark Seed Funding as individuals or as part of MDTs. Subsequently, 77 HSCPs were selected to attend design workshops, with 42 HSCPs in supported projects. Considering the level of interest from HSCPs, in an effort to support and shape innovative proposal, the National HSCP Office in collaboration with National Doctors Training and Planning has prioritised and created this Fellow post.
