Quality Improvement

Quality Improvement

Quality improvement is an essential component of the strategic aims that define the work of the Faculty. Done well, quality improvement can deliver sustained improvements not only in the quality, experience, productivity, and outcomes of care, but also in the lives of the people working in healthcare.

The QI section of the website aims to provide the Intensive Care community with the support required to start to develop QI projects and signpost to educational material in Quality Improvement techniques. The faculty have been an integral part in providing topics for the QI compendium “Raising the Standards” (Royal College of Anaesthetists  4th Ed September 2020). It became clear when compiling the chapter that within the Intensive Care community there is a wider appetite for Intensive Care specific QI projects. The aim is to build up a repository of QI projects relevant to the speciality and we would welcome ideas from the Intensive Care community from all the four nations of the UK. Please email contact@ficm.ac.uk if with your suggestions.
