This year social workers, nursing and midwifery staff have joined together to
participate in the fifth year of the Regional Quality Improvement (QI) Programme.
Following the collaboration of social workers with nursing staff in 2018 the
programme has continued to expand and this year 43 participants from both the
social work, nursing and midwifery professions undertook the programme. Due to
COVID-19 pressures and restrictions unfortunately not all projects have completed
this year, please find a contact list for each participant / project included in this
booklet for further information.
We feel it is important that the learning from improvements is shared and therefore
this publication provides a copy of each QI project poster from this year's
programme and the outcomes achieved or to be achieved. Using the model for
improvement, the projects have focused on measuring the impact of improvement
on the outcomes for people who use our services.
We would like to congratulate all of the participants on completing the training and
on their commitment to making a difference to social work and nursing care. We
would also like to thank those involved in supporting the delivery of this programme
for their dedication and commitment to quality improvement and for putting
improvement at the heart of social work, nursing and midwifery.
