KQuIP Regional Activity

KQuIP has identified that an effective regional network structure is critical for the delivery of tangible improvements for patients. KQuIP is working to support and liaise with the existing structure of regional delivery networks to ensure an effective local delivery arm and intelligence network that can deliver the spread and sustainability of embedded quality improvement. KQuIP and the regions will be focusing on three priority areas for national quality improvement projects. Home Therapies, Transplant First and Vascular Access.

The regions that KQuIP is currently working with are:

West Midlands

The West Midlands KQuIP and UK Renal Registry regional day was held on 23 March 2017. It was designed in partnership between KQuIP and clinicians in the West Midlands, led by Clara Day, Network lead. The day focused on outcomes review and learning and development to identify areas for improvement for each unit. Renal units in the region identified their QI leads (one medical and one multi-professional). Their focus regionally was agreed to be improving access to home therapies. This will help to steer the KQuIP programme of activity within the West Midlands region.
