Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI)

“The Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) module builds on the quality assurance concepts in Foundation Programme, adding value and strength to general practices.”

“The Cornerstone Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) module allows practices to demonstrate their work towards improving health outcomes. The CQI module asks practices to identify an area of improvement in their work and apply a structured quality improvement model (such as a PDSA cycle) to track progress.  Although incorporating equity into the CQI project is important, it is not the main focus.  A successful outcome to the CQI project is not a requirement, as capturing the lessons learnt for future efforts and similar work is of ongoing value. The last step is to compile a final report that summarises your initiative, the quality improvement processes used and your findings.”
