QI Event 2018

Our third annual quality improvement event will be held at St Peter’s Hospital on Wednesday 27th June 2018 and we hope you can join us.

This all-day event will bring together staff from all across ASPH and beyond to celebrate some of the great quality improvement work that has been undertaken in the Trust in the last year; to meet and hear from some of the teams who have been working on QI projects, and to learn from others in an informal environment.

The theme of this year’s event is ‘Keep Improving, Keep Learning’.

Picture1We are passionate about creating a culture of ‘curiosity and creativity’ at ASPH, one that is fair, open and supportive; and one of the ways we will contribute to this culture is to have an approach to quality improvement that develops capacity and capability for individuals and teams to make improvements for themselves.  We also aim to become a learning organisation in order to eliminate avoidable harm to our patients.

We look forward to bringing together these two complimentary goals at our event with a focus on learning, sharing ideas and celebration and will also include:

  • Presentations from ASPH teams and others on their QI projects
  • Opportunities for discussion and networking with colleagues
  • A QI project poster competition open to everyone
  • And three external keynote speakers (more details below)
