Quality Improvement (QI) is an evidence-based approach that helps primary care free up time to deliver and evaluate initiatives, and embed new approaches more effectively and efficiently into practice.
QI helps us to make the most of our systems, organisations, talents and expertise to deliver better outcomes for patients.
This Learning Network is your starting place for all QI resources the College has and is developing. These resources and guidance are developed with members, by members, and for members.
We have developed a framework using these principles which will evolve over time, just as the QI activities members undertake change and increase.
These tools and guidance, and the examples in practice, are for all primary care practice staff.
The QI Ready self-accreditation site provides GPs with the chance to measure themselves against achievable standards for QI set by the College and self-accredit as QI Ready.
There are eLearning modules available on the core principles, benefits and challenges of QI and we will be holding events and producing a QI toolkit to provide GPs and practice staff with more resources and opportunities to learn about implementing QI activities in practice.
This network has been developed as part of the Royal College of General Practice’s Quality Improvement programme, led by two Clinical Lead’s Dr Mike Holmes and Dr Simon Stockill. If you have any questions about the programme please get in touch with the team at QI.Ready@rcgp.org.uk.
