Quality Improvement

What is Quality Improvement?

Making improvements in health and social care is dependent upon a workforce that is skilled in 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.

Those working in care may notice 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 professionals the skills they need to make successful and sustainable changes to make life better for those they 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.

Quality Improvement is a great opportunity for professionals to develop skills, progress their career and to showcase work at national and international conferences and in journals, such as BMJ Quality.
