Supervising Quality Improvement Projects

Event Information

This half-day interactive course is for psychiatrists who have a role in supervising trainees' Quality Improvement (QI) development. The new core curriculum requires all core trainees to demonstrate the importance of QI to improve patient safety and outcomes of patient care, and to undertake QI activities relevant to their clinical practice, assessed through their educational supervisor report. This course will help supervisors to identify learning opportunities relating to QI, to support and guide their trainees throughout their QI projects. The course will cover:

  • The fundamental principles of QI and why it is important 
  • Highlight how your experience and knowledge are key to supporting trainees' QI projects and development 
  • Identify the key steps in planning and conducting a QI project and how to support trainees through each step
  • Discuss how to support trainees' learning and development, including through the use of guided discovery and assessment

The course will utilise a mixture of interactive lectures and group work to enhance learning. You will be encouraged to undertake an online RCPsych module Quality improvement module 1: QI essentials beforehand to ensure familiarity with the subject.

A draft programme is now available.
