There’s often a back to school feeling associated with September. That’s partly why we’ve included a piece about IHI Open School in this newsletter. (We’ve also included the piece because IHI Open School is excellent) CNWL now offers a wide range of QI training to staff such as quarterly learning events and Bitesize QI both featured in this edition. What sets Open School apart however, is the detail it goes into in order for you to understand and apply the Model for Improvement. Staff who complete the modules, in particular modules 101 to 105 find they have acquired an excellent grounding in QI methodology, and certainly enough to get started on a project. Open School also helps staff to complete QI training at their own pace, and includes many excellent and thought provoking clinical examples to inspire you.
In July, 32 trainee Improvement Coaches came together for Wave 2 of the Improvement Coach Professional Development Programme.
Getting involved in Quality Improvement Whether you’ve just returned from your summer holidays (welcome back - we missed you!) or whether you’re just about to take time off work, why not spend a few moments thinking how you can get involved in QI. There’s a QI story below to inspire you. Whether that’s volunteering to be part of a QI project (no previous experience required), finding out more by registering for Bitesize QI training, or by completing some of the excellent e-learning modules.
