Creativity and innovation

The Creativity and innovation webinar explores some principles and tools that can be used to help unlock creativity and lead to innovation.

Using creative approaches, thinking and the freedom to explore possibilities can lead to innovation.  Innovation is something that has not been done before - for this we need to think beyond incremental improvement. 

The webinar intends to:

  • cover some principles and tools that can be used to help unlock creativity
  • share some of the common barriers faced for creativity in healthcare
  • demonstrate how something simple as “drawing” and “pictures” can have a massive impact
  • provide you with some practical tips on how to bring creativity into the workplace
