RCVS Knowledge announces free educational quality improvement series
The QI Boxset will provide practices and practitioners with guidance in establishing a quality improvement structure in practice. RCVS Knowledge has announced their latest free educational series today; the QI Boxset is a series of webinars, podcasts, and video interviews on quality improvement (QI) initiatives for practices & practitioners. The first podcast has just been released, covering why QI is important in veterinary practice, and several more episodes will be teased throughout April before the entire first series is launched on RCVS Knowledge’s new learning platform at the end of the month.
The resources offer a comprehensive guide to the application of QI in practice to help teams improve the quality of care provided to their patients. They are designed to be easily digestible and relevant to practitioners and practice teams and feature a range of experts, including John Williams, National Surgical Lead at Vets Now; Angela Rayner, Director of Quality Improvement at CVS; and Caroline Freedman, the representative for pet owners on the RCVS’ Practice Standards group. The multimedia resources will be supplemented with additional reading and resources, with all the content free to access.
The first series ‘Establishing a Quality Improvement structure in Practice’ covers how to get started in practice, how QI fits with clinical governance and the Practice Standards Scheme, and how to have effective communication within practice teams. Future QI Boxset series will also cover clinical audits, benchmarking, checklists, human factors, systems thinking and practice culture.
Pam Mosedale, QI Clinical Lead at RCVS Knowledge, said, “We can’t wait to launch this brand-new series, which we hope will be extremely useful and accessible for those in practice and beyond. I would like to thank all our contributors who enabled this to happen, who provided brilliant advice and guidance on applying QI in practice. QI Boxset is designed to make QI more accessible, so that everyone feels confident in giving it a go, to see the benefits it provides to practice teams and their patients.”
