Through ASCQI we have achieved a number of key aims of Closing the Gap through Clinical Communities. The project has stimulated learning about QI amongst health professionals and clinical teams in the majority of ambulance services in England. We have built clinicians’ knowledge and skills on a Quality Improvement Collaborative approach and the application of quality improvement methods. Our evaluation of the project using a case study approach will contribute to the systematic body of knowledge on how best to engage clinicians in QI activity. We have supported clinical communities in ambulance services to make demonstrable improvements in quality by tackling known gaps between best practice in the routine care of AMI and stroke in many trusts.
Our e-learning programme is designed as an introduction for health and social care professionals interested to learn more about the science and practice of quality improvement (QI).
