Silver - Quality Improvement in Action

The Silver level course begins with two days of training and workshop activities with the aim of developing improvement teams and working through the initial stages of their improvement initiatives.

Participants will have short monthly sessions to receive additional help and support and to build on their QI knowledge in ‘mini-classes’. The 7 month course will culminate in the participants presenting the results of their improvement work and qualifying as an Improvement Practitioner.

You will need to allocate 2 days (or 4 x half day sessions) for the initial workshop followed by 2 hours a month for each of the subsequent timetabled sessions. Additional time will also be required for you to work on your improvement outside of these sessions: this time commitment will vary depending on the scope of your improvement initiative.
