Quality improvement

“There is no single definition of quality improvement. However, a number of definitions describe it as a systematic approach that uses specific techniques to improve quality. One important ingredient in successful and sustained improvement is the way in which the change is introduced and implemented."  Quality improvement made simple – Quick guide, The Health Foundation, pg.9

A common quality improvement approach used in healthcare is the ‘Model for Improvement', supported by the Plan, Do, Study, Act cycle.
