West Midlands Patient Safety Collaborative supports the Life Quality Improvement system


Posted on 18 January 2017 (Permalink)

The West Midlands Patient Safety Collaborative (WMPSC) is supporting the adoption of the Life Quality Improvement (QI) system. 

Life is built around the Model for Improvement, a framework for accelerating improvement. The model is used by hundreds of health and social care organisations across the globe to facilitate quality improvement work.

The WMPSC is encouraging the use of Life in the West Midlands and introducing it to organisations that want to use it, particular with the care home programme, SPACE.

The Life QI system has been rolled out across the NHS in England and now has a UK user base of more than 3,000 people. It contains more than 1,000 active projects and is even being trialled in eight different countries.

Life allows collaboration on quality improvement projects, promoting transparency and learning from others. The system provides visibility of the QI work and QI professionals, making it easy for users to learn form the progress of others and connect with their QI community, both locally and nationally.

To see how Life has helped users, include various AHSNs, take a look at the Life website. For more on Life or the WMPSC, contact Pete Jeffries, Patient Safety Programme Manager, on 0121 371 8061.
