Q All-Ireland COVID-19 Learning: Visioning for the Future Workshop - Event has now reached capacity but you can still register on the link to receive the write-up
Rapid innovation and learning have been at the heart of our immediate response to coronavirus (COVID-19) in Ireland. It is important that the conditions and ways of working that have enabled innovation to thrive are not lost in our rush to return to business as usual.
This workshop will help you to think about practical ways to navigate the uncertainties from COVID-19, with ideas to help you and your team develop a clear vision for the future.
It is hosted by the Q community, and delivered in partnership with the Health and Social Care QI Northern Ireland and the HSE National Quality Improvement teams.
The event will be of particular interest to members of the Q community and those leading or with a passion for Quality Improvement.
This online workshop is designed to support collaborative learning, with interactive sessions and practical support to help capture, evaluate and assess rapid improvements. You will leave with ideas and inspiration for how to make sense of the learning generated through the COVID-19 pandemic, and how to use this to enable good decision-making now and in the future.
Places are limited for this free event.
You are invited to a virtual workshop.

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.
Almost 4000 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.
