Senior leaders, clinicians, health educators and Q fellows met in February to agree a strategy for developing capability and capacity that will support improvement in quality and safety across the Oxford AHSN region.
The key questions explored were:
- What kind of skills and abilities do we need to improve the safety and quality of care?
- What have we done to build improvement capability and capacity locally and regionally?
- What worked, what didn’t and what are we missing?
- How can we build on the strengths of the past and fill the gaps going forward?
The group heard local, regional and national perspectives on learning from past and current work towards building improvement capability and capacity. Work is now underway to summarise the day and plan the establishment of a regional quality hub.
