The GSQIA aims to contribute to a patient safety aware workforce with the knowledge, skills and confidence to continually strive for safety and quality improvement and excellence throughout the Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. We co-ordinate a number of training programmes and these are available to all GHNHSFT staff. 

Quality Improvement Training

This programme will support you to contribute to the continuing improvement of patient care and safety in our hospitals and can be used to demonstrate continuing professional development. There will be opportunities to present your work to a variety of audiences for recognition of the work that you have completed and to compete for prizes, including opportunities to enter and attend national competitions to showcase your work.

This programme provides opportunities for further personal and professional development including the opportunity to progress into QI teaching roles as part of the Academy.


Quality Improvement Education Programme Content

The following topics are covered during the respective courses:

Please note that the programme is structured such that the Silver training includes the content of the Bronze training package. Whilst there are additional topics covered during Silver that are not covered during the Bronze training, the main emphasis of the Silver programme is to support participants in the application of the techniques to a Quality Improvement initiative. Both courses include Improvement Science theory and participatory activities to demonstrate the techniques.
