Upcoming Graduation and Awards Celebration 
25 April 2017


The 3rd Gloucestershire Safety & Quality Improvement Academy Awards and Graduation will take place on the 25th April at 2-5pm in the Lecture Hall in Redwood Education Centre, Gloucester.

The award ceremony marks the end of the 7 month, Silver – Quality Improvement in Action programme for 14 members of staff who have been working on 10 different improvement projects across the Trust. This event gives each team the opportunity to share their work and their learnings and for the Trust to recognise and celebrate their achievements.

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. 

At the conclusion of the programme participants will also graduate as Silver – Quality Improvement Practitioners, recognised by the presentation of a Silver QI pin badge and certificate.

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

The event is open to everyone to attend and we would encourage you to come along and support your colleagues!
