Lecturer practitioner Jenny Hadley conducts a study day
Focusing on Quality Improvement

09am - Thursday 31st January 2019, at Compton Care Learning and Development Centre

Aim:

For all of us working in palliative and end of life care, providing the best possible care for patients / and their families lies at the heart of what we do. But what do we really know about the quality of our care? Indeed, when we stop to think about it, what does ‘quality’ actually mean and from whose perspective are we assessing this? How can we gather information about and measure different aspects of quality and, crucially, what steps are we taking to ensure that we provide the best care possible?

This practical full day workshop explores the concepts of Quality and Quality Improvement and its links to measurement for improvement. Participants will explore and use a range of tools and techniques relevant to their own practice as well as examine ways to engage others and gain support. With a highly practical focus, the workshop also considers some of the challenges and barriers associated with QI, providing some useful advice and solutions.

‘The aim of improvement endeavours in healthcare is to make services better. That might be safer (less errors, infections, falls), more effective (delivering care that is based on science – neither over or under treating), more efficient (less waste), more person centred (caring, compassionate, fitting with patient/family requests), equitable or timely’ (QI Hub)

Target Audience:

The workshop is ideally suited to staff within Hospices and other care settings with an interest in delivering high quality Palliative and End of Life Care.

Cost:

£40.00

Venue:

Compton Care Learning and Development Centre
