This systemic approach includes the use of techniques such as audit, PDSA cycles the understand of measurement for improvement to build a project.
Why does it matter to me?
How doesn’t it matter to you!! Bed blocks, 4 hour waiting time, Patients awaiting discharge, are these things that are affecting you on a daily basis? Then it matters to you.
We all have a responsibility to improve the care of our patients, regardless of our position in the organisation. We can do this through understanding, engaging with our wider clinical and managerial teams and getting involved with Quality and Service improvement projects.
