Coaching Quality Improvement Teams
You probably know the importance of forming QI teams, but without a coach who helps the team's work they might find difficulties in collaborating effectively. Teams often need to learn how to organise meetings and communication so that team members feel free to give their ideas. Without this information, team leaders will often try to solve problems without understanding the real challenges faced by the people doing the work.
This month we would like to provide new and potential coaches with the confidence in providing coaching to healthcare improvement teams. We will show you methods and tools you can use to help you coach improvement teams and the importance of team development and shared responsibility.
We'll explain how QI project team meetings can help support and transform your improvement culture and will give useful tips on how to empower participants to engage in the QI conversation.
