This month we are looking at QI Leadership!
Leaders are critical for owning and expanding the quality improvement approach and providing the needed energy for implementation and scale up. Whilst we are not all born leaders, everyone has the potential to lead improvement in their areas. Leaders must be empowered to improve care, to induce others to become leaders, to see the potential of something, honour it, and support others in improving care.
If you are a leader in healthcare and you are thinking about implementing Quality Improvement (QI) within your organisation, we’ve gathered together some hints and tips that might be useful before you get started. See how to become a QI leader
If you're a healthcare leader looking to develop a culture of improvement within your organisation, you should expect several stages in the journey to introduce organisation-wide improvement. Here are some ideas of what to expect and what the stages in your journey might look like. Read more about the stages of the improvement journey
Links between good leadership (supported by QI) & enhanced patient care is acknowledged across healthcare systems. Leaders using this systematic approach & techniques to improve care are being recognised & applauded. Dictatorial style leadership is now seen as stifling improvement. Learn how to become a good leader
There is much feedback on the benefits of using QI for healthcare teams and also a general feeling that quality care can be achieved if our healthcare leadership embrace quality improvement.
