Care City, Barking - Foundations of Quality Improvement
Do you work in an area where you and your colleagues need support to make positive change? Are you new to Quality Improvement? Working in Barking & Dagenham, Havering, Redbridge or Waltham Forest?
Join us for our 1-day Foundations of Quality Improvement module. You'll learn how to evaluate performance in your current area of practice, adopt the model for improvement to make changes that benefit your service users and your organisation and analyse data in a way that makes sense - even for those of us who aren't genius mathematicians!
What is Quality Improvement?
Quality improvement is a systematic approach that uses specific techniques to make care safe, effective, person-centred, timely, efficient and equitable. It gets rid of those 'rocks in your shoes' that slow you down every day!
You may have noticed in your own organisation that the most successful changes to practice are those that are tested and implemented well.
Why do we need Quality Improvement?
Care City can give you the skills you need to make successful and sustainable changes to make life better for you and those you care for.
Health and care services are facing challenging times and quality improvement is widely viewed as an opportunity to change the way we deliver services and provide high quality care for current and future generations.
It's also a great opportunity to develop your skills, progress your career and to showcase your work at national and international conferences and in journals, such as BMJ Quality.
