Partner Priority Programme (PPP) Round 3
As with the earlier Rounds, PPP Round 3 will harness expertise from across the CLAHRC NWC, pooling the knowledge and resources of NHS, Local Authority and University Partners and Public Advisors within Collaborative Implementation Groups (CIGs) focussed on projects/topics of shared interest. The facilitation of collaborative inquiry and co-learning within the CIGs will underpin the PPP Workshop process, enabling Partners to build workforce capability and capacity to support implementation and evaluation of local service innovation and transformation.
In Round 3 the workshop content will be centred on the Improving Delivery Of Services Through Implementation Science Masters-level Module at UCLan – with Partners applying the Module learning through their implementation projects (see Table 1).
PPP Round 3 Workshops and participation in the CIGs will be open to all CLAHRC NWC Partners. In addition, Partners will be able to nominate individuals to undertake a CLAHRC NWC-funded Internship linked to their PPP project.
In Round 3 the Internship will also provide a funded place on the UCLan Module (for which Interns can accrue 20 learning credits at Level 7 towards a relevant qualification). Registration for the module will be online and interns will have access to library, learning resources etc. through UCLan.

Module Learning Outcomes
By encouraging mixed teams of practitioners, commissioners, patients, public and researchers to work together, and by enhancing their skills, knowledge and expertise, the aims are to:
On successful completion of this module Interns will be able to:
PPP participants will also be able to:
The CIGs will also have a reflective and experiential element, stemming from teams coming together to learn and develop their Implementation Projects and related outputs.
Participating Interns and teams may (co)produce the following outputs:
Timeline for workshops
The PPP Round 3 Workshops will run from September 2018 to mid-2019.
- The first six workshops (Sept 2018-Jan 2019) will take participants through the UCLan Implementation Science Module and other topics (e.g. health inequalities, public involvement) that CIGs will need to support Interns in developing project Implementation Plans. There are 3 to 4-week time gaps between workshops for local action, preparation for next workshop etc. (approx. 1 day per week).
- The Implementation Plans will then need to be submitted by the Interns in February 2019 for assessment by the UCLan Module examiners. Together with additional CLAHRC documentation (e.g. completed Health Inequalities Assessment Tool, Public Advisor Job Description, match-funding details), the Implementation Plans will also be submitted to the March 2019 CLAHRC NWC Steering Board & Sub-Committee.
- For the remainder of the time (February-Summer 2019) we will be supporting Partners through CIG Support Workshops to undertake their Implementation Projects locally. Projects will also (co)produce a CLAHRC BITE and Implementation Guide and a co-reflection report on their Implementation Project, the process of implementation locally, and their personal learning.
- A Review Workshop and a Dissemination Event (based on short project presentations) will take place in autumn 2019.
The CIGs will be supported in their work via the core PPP team facilitators, the Internship Scheme, the Evidence Synthesis Collaboration and the Capacity Building Theme. Public involvement will be embedded in the process. There will be an on-line learning Portal at UCLan, peer support and contacts within the network; and there is potential for follow-up support (e.g. Writing for Publication).
The work will be co-ordinated by the CLAHRC NWC Knowledge Exchange Theme and the Capacity Building Theme.
What we need your help with:
We now need NHS and Local Authority Partners to identify: a) Projects for their organisations to implement as part of the PPP Round 3 (see CLAHRC project inventory previously circulated for inspiration); and b) individuals interested in becoming an Intern and undertaking the Improving Delivery Of Services Through Implementation Science Masters-level Module in order to implement the chosen projects locally.
Interns and Partners will be expected to dedicate up to one day a week to their implementation project for a period of up to one year. Salary back-fill will be provided for the Intern to assist with time released. The employing organisation of the intern will be offered payment of £6000 in order to release interns from their duties.
