Mindful of these barriers, the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC NWL) developed an eLearning resource called QI4U as part of an effort to build capacity in a systematic approach to quality improvement, that leads to better patient care.
The current modules available are:
- Action Effect Method
- Mental and Physical Wellbeing
- Public and Patient Engagement/Involvement
- Process Mapping
- Long Term Success
- Stakeholder Engagement
- Play-Do-Study-Act cycles
- Measurement for Improvement
On completion of a course, users receive a downloadable course completion certificate, accredited for CPD through the Royal College of Physicians, UK.
QI4U not only overcomes barriers of traditional learning mechanisms but also tackles geographical limits for learning across boundaries. QI4U is targeted towards but not limited to frontline clinicians, academics, patients, public and service users. QI4U allows individuals, teams and organisations to have a common language and shared understanding of QI terms and methods and how to do implement QI well in practice.
