Reflections on Research – the pointy end of the funnel

At the halfway point of the year, and the 5-month point of my 12-month Fellowship, I thought it a good time to stop and reflect. (I have tried writing one of these posts at the 3-month and 4-month marks but became stuck. I hope this is not a metaphor for my Fellowship.)

After following the above tweet by Helen Bevan, to an article by “entrepreneur turned venture capitalist” Mark Suster, I discovered the “funnel framework” – a marketing model that seems a good fit of my Fellowship experiences so far.

When Sonia posted about the School for Health and Care Radicals (SHCR) back in January, I had no idea that signing up would unleash the radical within me (all for the investment of a few of hours per week).

I am hoping for a similarly mind-blowing, practice-changing experience with Improvement FUNdamentals, an NHS-led MOOC focussing on quality improvement in health and care.

I am sure that, as with the SHCR, we will form ANZ and palliative care sub-communities. You can read more about it and sign up here. It would be great to have some of the Palliverse community along for the ride.
