QSIR: Practitioner is a nationally accredited program from the Advancing Change and Transformation (ACT) Academy that provides participants with the know-how to design and implement more productive services.
It is based on highly successful previous courses and offers a comprehensive curriculum that includes:
- Leadership Fundamentals
- Project Management
- Sustainability of Improvement
- Engaging and Working with Others
- Process Mapping
- Creativity in Improvement
- Measurement for Improvement
- Demand and Capacity
Participants attend for five days over a three month period, and must have an existing project or project idea. During the program they apply the learning from the course to their own improvement projects, being supported between workshops to help make them a success. They are therefore not only learning methodology in quality improvement, but actively changing and improving local services as they study.
