Quality Improvement Week - Friday 23 October: Transformation and local improvement projects

Friday 23 October - Transformation and local improvement projects

To round off Quality Improvement Week we will be looking at key quality improvement projects that are happening right now across the Trust, and how you can get involved.

In the morning we'll look at our Community Mental Health Teams reconfiguration workshop, give you an update from our transformation programmes and introduce a range of case studies from our Microsystems.

Over the lunch period, our clinical and service directors will be making themselves available for a live question and answer session, to take questions, comments and provide clarification on areas of improvement you have heard about during the week.

In the afternoon we'll look at the '7 Steps' initiative from Listening into Action and hear updates from teams about the changes they've introduced this year.

Finally, the Information Management and Systems Technology team will round off the week highlighting the key initiatives being developed to support quality improvement across the organisation.
