Overview

Suitable for anyone with an interest in quality improvement (QI), this is an informative and collaborative day covering subjects essential to managing successful quality improvement.
Date
18 March 2021
Venue
Online
CPD
5 credits

If you're interested in QI, this is the course for you. Maybe you're in the middle of a QI project, just getting started or still thinking about what you might do in the future.

You'll enjoy lectures and practical group challenges from a faculty ranging across the entire multidisciplinary team, including patient representatives.

You're encouraged to bring your own QI projects to work on; you'll work with patients and stakeholders and learn about measurement for improvement and how to use key QI tools.

We've all had to rapidly adjust our practices during the COVID-19 pandemic. This course helps you use QI as a feasible and flexible approach to help guide and measure the impact of these changes.
