Quality Improvement

Our training programme utilises specialist innovation training, e.g., defining innovation, problem definition and scoping and projects. We also utilise existing recognised training e.g. NHSi Quality Service Design and Reconfiguration (QISR). This approach provides the best opportunity for the hub to increase the innovation literacy within the workforce and further support the development of a universal language enabling innovators to work seamlessly across the system.

Our Dorset Quality Improvement Lite training (Qi Lite)

Qi Lite is a new and exciting Dorset-wide approach to give all organisations a standard introduction to quality improvement.

The training is for clinical and non-clinical staff and can be used in all areas of your business, whether you are looking at improving your office processes, clinical practice, or client engagement.

It will give you:

  • Enough knowledge to understand a basic Qi approach, and undertake simple projects with small scope
  • Confidence in Qi if you are part of a wider project
  • An appetite to learn more
  • And the opportunity to network across the system

The course runs for two hours and occurs once per month. To get yourself booked in choose a date below and follow the links to our booking pages on Eventbrite.

The course is free for all staff working within Our Dorset.
