To build capacity in a systematic approach to quality improvement for frontline staff and service users, we have commissioned NIHR CLAHRC NWL to provide an e-learning resource for us called QI4U. It is targeted towards but not limited to frontline clinicians, professionals, academics, patients and service users.
There are eight quality improvement modules, with further modules planned for release in Spring 2018.
These improvement modules have easy to understand content that allow users to confidently and independently learn how to effectively utilise various Quality Improvement methods for their projects. The modules have useful resources such as videos, diagrams, downloadable templates and easy to read text. Within each module there is an encouragement for users to utilise the ‘reflective diary’ option by asking related thought provoking questions that can be answered within the reflective diary.
QI4U contains an interesting data visual that allows users to see a snapshot comparison of achievement between pre-and-post tests for each completed module. As well as the pre-and-post test there are mini tests throughout each module to help the learner track whether they are retaining the information learnt.
Completing QI4U modules will allow you to download completion certificates and completing the current eight modules will give you 11 Royal College of Physicians CPD credits.
