Q Community - Join a community of improvers across UK and Ireland
The Health Service Executive (HSE) and The Health Foundation are working in partnership to provide Q community membership in Ireland. It is an exciting opportunity for improvers in Ireland to connect and collaborate with fellow improvers, use Q as a source of innovation and practical problem solving and get involved with a range of activities and benefits that are on offer.
Applications for improvers in Ireland to join Q opened on 1 May 2020.
Q is an ambitious, long-term initiative that brings together people working to improve health and care. It is led by The Health Foundation and supported by 5 country partners across the UK and Ireland.
Q’s mission is to foster continuous and sustainable improvement in health and care. By creating opportunities for people to share ideas, enhance skills, and collaborate, Q supports members to use and develop the wealth of ideas and expertise that currently exists in every part of the UK and Ireland.
Over 4,000 members are part of this diverse community, including health and care professionals, patient leaders, managers, commissioners, researchers, policymakers and others.
Those interested in joining Q will need to demonstrate knowledge and experience of improvement and reflect on how they can benefit and contribute to the community.
