Calling Clinicians in South East of England with an Interest in Sustainable Healthcare to suggest Quality Improve Project Ideas and Supervise KCL Med Students to help complete these projects

What’s the opportunity? 

Many clinicians are keen to practice more sustainable healthcare but lack the time needed to engage in quality improvement projects to do so. Partnering with students who are motivated to help build a more environmentally and socially sustainable healthcare system can make this much easier to achieve.

What we are asking? 

As a supervisor you put forward and Quality Improvement project idea from your own clinical area and then mentor a small team of Year 4 students from Kings College London to devise, run and complete the project. Each small team is made up of 3-4 students.  

We are specifically looking for project supervisors who have an interest in sustainable healthcare at the following sites: Kings College Hospital/ Guys St Thomas' Trust (including Evelina Childrens Hospital)/ Princess Royal University Hospitals (PRUH)/ Medway/ Lewisham and Greenwich/ Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells/Great Western Hospitals Swindon/ Maudsley Hospital/ Oxleas NHFT/ East Kent Mental Health Trust and William Harvey Hospital.

You will meet with each team on four separate occasions (for 1-2 hours each time) over the course of the project (Sept 2021-March 2022), provide project supervision and feedback, and undertake summative assessment. 

What training will I receive?

The QI & EBP Module includes online e-learning lessons and recommended reading, and provides the students with the knowledge they need, but the QI project helps them apply what they’ve learned.  Sustainable QI resources are integrated into the module e-learning materials and additional project resources are found at https://www.susqi.org. KCL provides an online faculty briefing/training session for QI supervisors. If you would like more sustainable QI training you may like to join CSH’s SusQI or Teaching SusQI courses.

How does this fit into the student’s curriculum?

The projects that you supervise will form part of the Kings College London Year 4 MBBS program as part of the Quality Improvement and Evidence Based Practice module in Stage 3, Year 4 of the MBBS curriculum.   The QI & EBP Module includes online e-learning lessons and recommended reading, and provides the students with the knowledge they need, but the QI project helps them apply what they’ve learned.
