Workshop format
Day one 8 July 2016

Delegates will:

  • Learn how to optimise the design and delivery of a Quality and Patient Safety Improvement Project.
  • Gain knowledge of methods and tools that are known to enable change in complex systems.
  • Receive coaching on specific concerns through small group sessions.
  • Leave the day with a clear understanding of the next steps: how to construct a project, measure progress and where to seek advice.

Registration will open at 09:00, with the first session starting at 09:30. The day will include lunch and will finish at 16:30.

Following on from day one participants will be expected to have used the tools learnt to imitate (and aim to complete) their chosen projects to bring to day two.

Day Two  – 14 October 2016 will be a half day and a key part of the learning experience. It will enable sharing between groups; explore ideas that work to enable spread and sustainability of the progress achieved since day one. The publication of QI work is important and we will consider how and where such work is best directed.

A session on sustainability and spread will be available after the second half day for those scaling up their work.

Registration will open at 09:00, with the first session starting at 09:30.  The day will include lunch and an optional sustainability and spread session will begin at 14:00, finishing at 15:30.

Attending both days of this meeting, including the Sustainability and spread session will gain each delegate 10 CPD points.  Those that do not attend the additional session will receive 8 CPD points.
