Quality Improvement Skills Training

In 2015, the Wales Deanery launched the Quality Improvement Skills Training (QIST) programme.

This approach is seen as a sustainable educational strategy that supports and builds confidence in leadership and management skills, including those of quality improvement (QI) for trainees. This programme aims to empower trainees to develop the knowledge, skills and values necessary to improve the quality of care to patients.

By equipping trainees with QI skills, improvements in service provision will impact on patient care by making healthcare more effective, efficient, equitable and above all safer.

This project provides a coordinated all-Wales needs assessment and programme evaluation of the QIST programme within primary care, secondary care and dentistry.
