RCVS Knowledge will host its second Quality Improvement (QI) event this year, following a sell-out event last December.
‘QI in a Day’, on Thursday, 18 April, will include eight hours of CPD content, advising on how QI can be incorporated into daily practice.
It will provide veterinary practices with ‘how-to’ steps, exploring how they can improve outcomes and care, embed new systems that will improve patient safety, and learn from things that happen in practice.
Interactive sessions will look at the root causes of practice issues, and highlight how staff can learn from successes and failures. They will also support a good learning culture, improved communication and a united team.
Sessions will be hosted by expert clinical leads Pam Mosedale, Kathrine Blackie, and Lou Norway. They will be followed up by a free virtual workshop, to support attendees with individual projects.
RCVS Knowledge says that 96 per cent of veterinary professionals agreed that QI methods supported high quality care. However, they also said they struggled to implement QI due to lack of time, not knowing where to start and not knowing how to bring colleagues on board.
Katie Mantell, chief executive officer of RCVS Knowledge, said: “We can’t wait to welcome you and your team to our next QI in a Day event. The demand for the first event in December was phenomenal and underlined the fact that there’s great enthusiasm for QI in the veterinary professions.
“Whether you’re a total novice with QI, or already have some experience, you’ll come away from this event having learned about practical steps you can take to improve.”
‘QI in a Day’ will take place at The Forest Centre in Marston Moretaine in Bedford, from 9.00am-5.00pm.
Early-bird tickets are on sale until 18 February, for £260. There are only 60 tickets available for this course. Tickets can be booked here.
