Quality Improvement Programme - Latest cohort celebrate their graduation

NELFT staff members celebrated the completion of the Quality Improvement Facilitators Programme – Cohort 5 with their graduation day recently. The event was held at the CEME Centre in Rainham on Wednesday 28 March. It gave the latest cohort of facilitators the opportunity to present their projects to attendees, as well as celebrate their graduation and for them to receive their certificates.

The day was opened by Caroline Allum, Executive Medical Director, who spoke about the success of the Quality Improvement focus at NELFT.

Laura Stuart Neil, Lead for Allied Health Professionals and Quality Improvement, then addressed the attendees - before the 24 graduates were then given the opportunity to present their QI projects and their QI posters were also displayed in the Boardroom at CEME.

The Quality Improvement projects were of a particularly high standard and there was much celebration in relation to the level of patient engagement and involvement in the development of these projects.

It was a fantastic event and all graduates were presented with their QI Facilitators certificate and a QI Facilitators badge by Jacqui Van Rossum, Executive Director for Integrated Care (London), which we are sure they will wear with great pride.

A huge congratulations to all those who graduated and we look forward to their future involvement in QI. Well done to all.

Quality Improvement is about making healthcare safe, effective, patient-centred, timely, efficient and equitable. It aims to bring about a measurable improvement by applying specific methods within a health care setting.
