QPS Education


Our purpose is to support a culture of continuous learning by enabling the development of QPS (Quality and Patient Safety) competence across our health system.

What we do

We provide:

  • Accessible learning through our central QPS learning management system and resources.
  • Excellence in learning through our standardised and evidence based approach to design, development and digital support for QPS learning programmes and systems.
  • Enhanced QPS capability by continuing to develop QI (Quality Improvement) and Human Factors Learning pathways and fostering the development of local QPS communities of practice that build facilitation skills for QPS programmes and provide a space for shared learning. 
  • Alliances and collaboration with the people who use and deliver our services to influence and align QPS learning agendas, curricula, best practices, and research that will grow and develop QPS competence across the system.
