HSCQI (Health and Social Care Quality Improvement) is a ‘movement’ in health and social care services in Northern Ireland working together to focus on improving the quality of the services we provide/use, and sharing good practice so that we can all learn from each other and spread improvements.
HSCQI has a focus on developing system –wide quality improvement (QI) capability and skills, and improving services. To date an extensive range of ground breaking QI projects from across the system have been put into place to improve the health and wellbeing of our citizens. HSCQI aims to empower clinicians, professionals, support staff and service users, to participate in QI across the region.
The HSCQI Directorate in the PHA is home to the Improvement Hub for the HSCQI network. The Hub Team coordinates regional support for the spread of specific quality improvement initiatives across HSCNI, by connecting improvement activity and people from across the system to deliver quality improvement at scale. Dr Aideen Keaney is the Director the HSCQI Hub and Network..
