Vote for your favourite 'Most Innovative Quality Improvement' in the run up to our Gloucestershire Safety & Quality Improvement Academy Awards 2016.

The Award Ceremony marks the end of our Silver Quality Improvement in Action programme for our staff who have been working on 12 different improvement projects across our hospitals.

Each team will present a summary of their improvement work and prizes will be awarded in the categories of Best Quality Improvement, Most Innovative Quality Improvement, Best Poster and Best Presentation, through a combination of judging panel, online and audience voting.

In addition to the programme of presentations, posters representing each improvement initiative will be displayed during the break for the audience to view and vote for in the Best Poster category.

In addition to providing an opportunity to share the learning from improvements that are under way, the Awards form an integral part of our objective to create an ‘Improvement Movement’ across our organisation; with the ultimate ambition of creating a culture of continuous improvement.

The event takes place at the Lecture Hall at Redwood Education Centre at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital on 8th December 2016 between 2pm – 5pm.
