Cumberland Initiative

FMLM and The Cumberland Initiative are working collaboratively on simulation and modelling for medical leaders. 

This partnership enables FMLM members to upgrade their membership to include affiliation with The Cumberland Initiative. 

Cumberland Initiative


What is it? 

The Cumberland Initiative is a movement to encourage simulation and modelling of healthcare scenarios to deliver improved quality of care.

This innovative systems thinking offers a strategic approach to designing care and is a high level means of improving  all healthcare operations. 

Why join?

Becoming a Cumberland affiliate provides the opportunity to meet with similarly-minded people to participate in Cumberland projects working with companies and universities to effect change in the healthcare system.

By applying better processes and systems through modelling and simulation, quality of care will be transformed to produce superior outcomes at huge cost savings. It is increasingly recognised as crucial in the armamentarium of healthcare leaders and is prominent in the FMLM Leadership and Management Standards for Medical Professionals.

How it works?

FMLM members have the opportunity to become a Cumberland Affiliate for an annual fee, which includes:

  • The chance for UK based clinicians to join teams for hands on improvement modelling in collaboration with universities and medical organisations
  • 20% discount to Cumberland Initiative events and training opportunities (discounted event entry links only available to FMLM Cumberland Affiliates)
  • Inclusion to the Cumberland Initiative mailing list to receive latest news and exclusive opportunities
  • Future access to training and development opportunities for modelling and simulation

Listen back to the launch webinar

Led by Professor Terry Young, Chair of healthcare systems, Brunel University London, an introductory webinar was held in February to provide an introduction to The Cumberland Initiative and what's on offer to FMLM members as Cumberland affiliates. You can listen back now to hear about the reasons behind modelling, what can be gained from it and what methods have proven useful in healthcare.

The Cumberland Intiative have a growing range of resources in support of the Cumberland mission, access the latest blogs and articles here.

There is also a YouTube Cumberland playlist which provides a range of short videos that summarise different areas of work they are involved in.
