About the workshop
Most healthcare workers recognise the need to make improvements in clinical pathways, processes, systems, and outcomes. So do their patients. Yet making these improvements often feels impossible alongside the challenges of day-to-day work and in the complex cultures of healthcare organisations. This session will cover QI methodologies such as Model for improvement , PDSA and Lean. The interactive workshop is for anyone who has ever wished they knew more about the science of healthcare improvement and the art of leading change in organisations.
