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.
Those of you who have completed QI training will no doubt be familiar with the notion that each of us has two jobs; the job we do, and improving the job we do. Perhaps less familiar to people is the notion that once you’ve completed a successful project, you should then share your success with others. By sharing the successful outcome of a project you will help others to benefit from your learning.
In this month’s newsletter we’re focussing on the role of managers in supporting the development of QI projects within their services. If you’re not a manager though, do read on as you should get a clearer idea of what QI support you can expect from managers and from other leaders in your service.
