Improvement Scholars Programme

The team at OHI delivers a one-year Improvement Scholars Programme that enables participants to take an intensive programme to learn about quality improvement and to lead an improvement project in a chosen field of work in clinical and service settings. The Improvement Scholars Programme is designed to support participants to become leaders of quality improvement in their field of work so that they feel equipped to develop projects, provide training and coaching to others, and to continue their relationship with the team at OHI for the benefit of future scholars.

Leadership Development Programme

The OHI team provides teaching on Quality Improvement to the Trust Leadership Development Programme. The aim of the programme is to strengthen leadership capability in the organisation to help ensure teams deliver high quality patient care to the satisfaction of service users. Each participant designs a project in their area of work using a systematic approach to design, implementation and evaluation. The project forms the basis for reflection on the participants’ development as leaders, learning how to approach quality improvement projects, and wider insights developed over the duration of the programme.
