FRAM Workshop

22nd April, 1pm to 3pm

Ever wondered why improving the delivery of health and social care can be so complex and complicated?

Join Dr Andrew Carson-Stevens (PRIME Centre Wales) and Prof. David Slater (School of Engineering, Cardiff University) for a workshop to explore how a method called the Functional Resonance Analysis Method (FRAM) can help you to understand complex systems.

By the end of the workshop, you will be able to:

  • Describe health and social care as a complex adaptive system;
  • Appreciate that there are a range of approaches available to map systems to understand their complexity
  • Set out what is the FRAM, its pros and cons, and how it can be used to model a complex system; and,
  • Identify where the FRAM can be integrated into your health services research
