Silver Quality Improvement Training

 In a nutshell: Silver level training includes a range of in-depth sessions around the practical application of quality improvement methods – from examples of methods, tools and techniques that engage multidisciplinary teams in quality improvement initiatives, to behaviour change – for individuals and teams.

 

Core Silver training: Prior to consulting with our Advisory Group, the IA offered one core silver training day for either individuals or teams from across all healthcare services who wanted to use quality improvement activities to bring about service change.   On the advice of our Group, we have since divided this core training into two separate 1-day training sessions: 

  • silver level for individuals;
  • silver level for teams.

Silver Level for Individuals: this training offers an introduction to Quality Improvement and provides examples of methods, tools and techniques that engage multidisciplinary teams in quality improvement initiatives.  Attendance is contingent on completion of the Bronze Level on-line training and all trainees receive a certificate of attendance.  Attendees are encouraged to carry out an optional follow-up improvement project with the support of their organization.

Silver Level for Teams: this new training course has been designed for teams that are ready and keen to work together to improve aspects of their services, but who lack the skills and confidence to get started.  The training takes a practical focus and throughout the day teams will be supported to develop their own project.  Attendance is contingent on completion of the Bronze Level on-line training and all trainees receive a certificate of attendance.  Teams are encouraged to carry out an optional follow-up improvement project with the support of their colleagues.

Additional Silver training

A number of non-core face-to-face courses are currently available to help individuals and organisations to develop their capacity to support improvement activities, including  ‘Understanding and Reducing Variation in Healthcare’, ‘Achieving Behaviour Change for Patient Safety’, and ‘The Science of Improvement’ .  

Work is underway to develop a wider range of training which will be made up of a mixture of full day, half-day and on-line learning modules relating to more specialist areas e.g. patient and public engagement, staff culture change.
