This one-day event, run in partnership with The King's Fund, is for people leading and delivering quality improvement strategies and approaches in health care organisations including primary care, NHS acute, mental health and community trusts.

It will help you to make a success of quality improvement projects in your organisation by drawing on lessons around leading, implementing and embedding initiatives that improve clinical effectiveness, safety and patient experience.

This is a fantastic opportunity to gain a real insight into how to make a success of quality improvement within your organisation or system, improve clinical effectiveness, patient experience and safety, including through:

  • Leading Experts – learn from those with first-hand experience of delivering successful quality improvement approaches
  • Evidence-Based Examples – hear more about successful quality improvement projects from across the North West, and how they’ve improved care for local people
  • Creating the Right Culture – how you can create and embed a culture that enables clinicians and staff to make real improvements.

On the day we will also be launching our thought paper which explores how organisations can develop a culture and quality improvement system to drive for continuous improvement.
