Healthcare Quality Improvement Certificate

Summary

Suitable for: NCHDs, clinicians, nurses, allied health professionals, pharmacists, healthcare managers and anyone involved in change management/continuous improvement

In RCSI, we understand the growing importance of building a quality and process improvement capability for today's healthcare organisations.

We also understand the importance of this capability becoming a core organisational competence with strong clinical leadership, as opposed to a dependency over time on external 'experts'.

We believe in the power and creativity of multidisciplinary healthcare teams working together to develop better healthcare delivery systems. Our experienced faculty brings a wealth of clinical and process engineering experience to support you and your teams on your improvement journey.

This three-day programme provides a high-level overview of how multidisciplinary teams in a healthcare setting can deliver quantifiable and sustained improvement in their service delivery. Our programmes focus on developing robust processes, enabling better patient flow while supporting the clinical team's effectiveness.
