Appreciating Health and Care

Appreciating Health and Care is a practical Appreciative Inquiry resource for the health and social care sector, combining Appreciating Inquiry theory with practical experience and examples in a broad range of professional settings.

Created in partnership with Health Innovation West Midlands and Aqua, it brings together the varied experiences of health care professionals in seeking ‘what is working’ and the principles behind the Learning from Excellence project.

Significant Appreciative Inquiry projects and practice have emerging over the last decade across the health and care sector – Appreciating Health and Care explains, collects and shares that work and learning.  The stories you will read demonstrate the rich response from health and social care practitioners across the UK. The book is in seven parts, covering:

  • an introduction to Appreciative Inquiry, its philosophy, principles and tools
  • information on the emerging AI movement in health and care
  • an ’AI in action’ section, including 16 case studies and examples of practice
  • extra resources
  • a useful glossary

A4 in format and stretching to 128 pages, this is an accessible and comprehensive introduction to the principles and practice of AI in health settings. In addition to the 16 case studies, it weaves many other practical examples of AI at work into the text. Part 4 includes a number of examples of AI resources from MyHomeLife Charity and one from the Centre for Supervision and Team Development.

This is the print version of the book, which is also available as an interactive eBook.

There is also a supplementary eBook, called Appreciating Health and Care: AI in practice, which introduces more professional experiences of using AI in the health and care sector.
