How Foundation year doctors Can improve patient safety


As FY doctors, if you ever think that something in the hospital could be done better, no matter how big or small the problem is, Quality Improvement is the way to address it.

Quality Improvement is a duty of doctors and all health professionals, and can be satisfying and fun.

The Thames Valley Leadership Academy runs a yearly competition for innovation projects from frontline healthcare staff. The winning projects receive funding and support to help their project come to fruition.

There will also be an end of year presentation ceremony on the 1st Friday of July, which has previously been held in Tingewick Hall, at which all the QIPs will be displayed as posters. The best posters and presentations win prizes!
