Training course: Sustainability in Quality Improvement
The Centre for Sustainable Healthcare is offering an interactive one-day course for up to 20 health professionals, students and educators on the inclusion of sustainability in quality improvement.
Sustainability has been recognised by the Royal College of Physicians as a domain of quality in healthcare, extending the responsibility of health services to patients not just of today but of the future. As a domain of quality, it follows that sustainability should be explicitly addressed in the course of ‘quality improvement’ activities. But how?
This intensive one-day course will introduce health professionals, students and educators to the concept of ‘sustainable value’ and the ‘SusQI’ framework for integrating sustainability into quality improvement. Learning from real examples, participants will explore in depth how the framework can be applied in practice to develop preventative, holistic, lean, low carbon care, and will consider how progress may be measured.
Participants will be supported to apply concepts to their own context: exploring practicalities and developing confidence in engaging colleagues and overcoming barriers.
