This webinar aims to provide guidance on how to maximise team working when carrying out quality improvement (QI). We will explore key tools and how to optimise involvement to get the most out of QI activity.

Learning objectives:

  1. How to start your QI project and how to set up a QI project team
  2. Establishing aims and defining measurement criteria – ‘what success looks like’
  3. Recognising QI tools you may already use and understanding others which can help
  4. How to sustain new practice and improvements

Who is it for:

Everyone with an interest in improving quality and patient outcomes.

(e.g. GPs, practice managers, GPNs, practice administrators, physician associates)

The content of this webinar will be non-clinical and pitched to support all staff to benefit from attending.


Following NHS England’s review of QOF in 2017/18, NHS England and the BMA’s General Practitioners Committee commissioned the RCGP, NICE, and the Health Foundation to develop QI modules for inclusion in the GMS contract. The QI QOF domain recommends the use of QI cycles to address priority areas. In 2019/20 this included modules focused on end-of-life care and prescribing safety.

In 2021/22 QOF comprises two modules: the early diagnosis of cancer and care of people with learning disabilities.

Knowledge and skills gained in this session can also be applied to practice priorities for improvement.
