The Spark Innovation Programme encourages healthcare providers to develop and implement their ideas so that we can improve our health service.
Spark was established by the National Doctors Training and Planning (NDTP) in 2017 to encourage and support innovation among frontline healthcare workers in Ireland.
The programme has grown from focusing on NCHDs, to include nursing and midwifery and AHPs. It is supported by the National Quality Improvement Team, the Nursing and Midwifery Services Director (ONMSD) and the National Health and Social Care Professions Office (NHSCPO).
