The Improvement Hub for HSCQI is inviting organisations to submit applications from individuals or teams (up to maximum of five applications per organisation, seven for the Belfast HSC Trust). Each of the five Category winners will be awarded £800 with the overall winner receiving a total prize of £1,600, to be put towards expenses, linked with advancing the Teams’ improvement goals.
The overall HSC Quality Improvement Award will be awarded to the individual/team category winner that has made the greatest contribution to quality improvement and safety in Health and Social Care.
The 5 category awards, each linked to projects advancing quality improvement are:
- Partnership working/Co-production
- Innovation/transformation in Care
- Integrating Care across boundaries
- Building reliable care
- Primary Care (for general practice only)
Given the COVID-19 pressures, we welcome any application in the categories above that applies some structured improvement approaches. These do not have to be related to COVID-19 and can be contemporaneous or from the last 24 months at the time of application.
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to showcase your great QI work and share your experience with colleagues across the Health and Social Care Sector. The closing date for applications is 4 January 2021.
