HSE National QI Team

The HSE National QI Team developed the QI toolkit as a resource to support people working on QI projects and initiatives in any health care setting. This toolkit contains a number of tools which should make carrying out a project easier.  The project map shares the four phases of the project starting out with a ‘light bulb’ moment right through to the sustainability plan.  This is where you are embedding the improvements you have achieved.There are some tools that you will find helpful for all projects and some tools may be more applicable to your project than others.
