Quality Improvement Bespoke Foundation Day

What is Quality Improvement?  

Quality improvement (QI) is about giving the people closest to issues affecting care quality the time, permission, skills and resources they need to solve them. It involves a systematic and coordinated approach to solving a problem using specific methods and tools with the aim of bringing about measurable improvement. 

How can we help?  

At Quality Improvement Services (QIS), we offer training, advice and coaching with all things clinical audit and quality improvement. We actively support and work alongside staff to develop their improvement ideas using improvement science methodology (Model for Improvement) for quality improvement, and clinical audit methodology for improving quality. 

Bespoke Foundation Training  

We offer Bespoke Foundation Day training, an opportunity to learn about QI methodology and framing the day around an issue you believe needs improving in your area. Here are some things you can expect to gain from our Bespoke session:
