York Hospitals Information Team

York Hospitals Information Team asked the Improvement Academy to run a training event for them on SPC in Healthcare. A day workshop took place to develop knowledge and skills in SPC charts – specifically how to design and build the formulas and charts in Microsoft Excel. This helps to support the science of improvement through understanding how we look at and manage variation in healthcare.

Heres some of the feedback from the workshop:

"Please could I pass on thanks from the whole team – the training session you delivered this morning was excellent and helped us all enormously"

“Excellent – exactly what I wanted” 

“Good practical advice on creating SPCs within excel”

“Very good, useful to practice whilst talking through” 

“Excellent – Exactly what I wanted” 

“Very useful, not too difficult despite being a complete beginner at SPC” 

“Good Mix of demonstration and hands practice” 

“The content was relative to the work we do and has triggered thoughts of how to use this in practice” 

“Very good – informative, not overloaded”
