Clinical Senate Forum – Thursday 3 October 2019: Applied Quality Improvement in Primary Care
There is variation in the extent that quality improvement (QI) is used in primary care in London and huge potential to apply and embed QI to drive change. The emergence of Primary Care Networks (PCNs) brings opportunities, as well as risks, when considering a structured approach to QI. This Forum explored the practical principles and critical features to enable STPs and PCNs to most effectively implement QI in their locality.
