Continuous Quality Improvement eLearning

Welcome to the Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) Team’s eLearning page.

During the ‘lockdown’ in 2020, the CQI team were unable to deliver training in the normal way, so we decided to run some virtual lessons for people to learn QI skills. These lessons aim to act as a quick introduction to topics we teach on our courses. Links to these sessions are available below.

Our normal teaching consists of two courses:

  • QSIR Fundamentals (1 day course outlining the basics of QI)
  • QSIR Practitioner (5 day course going in depth into QI which you can apply to an improvement project in your area)

If you would like to learn more about QI, please contact our email address (rwh-tr.cqi@nhs.net) to see what training is currently available.
