Sustainability in Quality Improvement learning resources

Sustainability has been recognised as a domain of quality in healthcare, and building it into quality improvement (QI) is a practical way to drive incremental change towards a more ethical, sustainable health system.

These learning resources have been developed by the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare.  Based on the SusQI Framework, they are designed to help learners to:

  1. Set sustainable goals for a quality improvement project.
  2. Recognise the use of environmental and social resources in a current service, and identify opportunities to improve.
  3. Design a project using sustainability principles (prevention, empowerment, lean pathways, low carbon alternatives) to achieve the greatest benefit.
  4. Measure the impact of a project on sustainable value.
