Event description


This event is open to all Q community members, although priority will be given to members based in the Greater Manchester region.

Event Overview:

Throughout 2018 we are supporting five events for Greater Manchester (GM) Q members. Whilst each is a standalone session, we hope and recommend that you can actively join the community in attending as many as possible throughout the year.

The Book Club is intended to meet the aims of the Q community; to develop, inspire, innovate and problem solve. We're also seeking to build skills amongst our Q members in GM, that support a community who share, challenge & learn together; to ultimately support members to effectively implement QI knowledge into practice.

What will attendees learn at this event / workshop?

Our unique format is structured to explore the overarching themes from the ‘Habits of an improver’ (Health Foundation 2015). In the paper, Professor Bill Lucas describes a perspective of viewing the field of improvement via 15 ‘habits’ which individuals like yourself regularly deploy.

The five broad headings include the following and are the themes for each of the sessions:

Day 1 - Book Club Launch and Learning - 12 April 2018

Day 2 - Influencing - 3 May 2018

Day 3 - Systems thinking - 28 June 2018

Day 4 - Resilience - 19 September 2018

Day 5 - Creativity - 14 November 2018

All sessions will run 9:30am - 1:30pm (lunch provided) and will take place in Manchester. Specific venue details will be sent to you upon signing up.

You will be provided with pre course material to be discussed at the first session. For further sessions, you will have the option of taking a book as a hardcopy or ebook to be discussed at the next session. Please note all books are to be returned.
