Building Capability for Improvement

Delivering high levels of performance across all domains of quality is dependent on organisational design, leadership and culture, measurement systems, and capability of the workforce.

Our offers aim to support members to develop their culture, capability and capacity for Quality Improvement approaches across all staff groups, services and systems; to help them deliver high quality care and address challenges faced within health and care, both now and in the future.

We will work with members to:

  • Build a culture and system for Quality Improvement
  • Develop capacity and capability for Quality Improvement across organisations
  • Provide development opportunities, advice and support to all staff; from frontline teams and service users, to managers, Boards and Non-Executive Directors
  • Represent a whole system approach for improvement
