GCPHN is currently offering practices the opportunity to participate in a facilitated data informed continuous quality improvement activity (CQI) focusing on health assessments.
This facilitated CQI will guide practices through all the steps of a CQI activity, from planning and implementing to monitoring, evaluating, and embedding health assessment QI into a business-as-usual model.
This opportunity is following success from our last facilitated activity, which focused on improving rates of cervical screening. Key successes included:
Confirmation that practices supported by a QI Team Project Officer (PO) increased their rates of cervical screening recorded after completion of the activity by a greater amount than non-participating practices (on average, by 6.0%), compared to a reduction by 0.5% in non-participating practices.
24 participating practices showed an increase in their cervical screening rates recorded when comparing data at project commencement and conclusion (ranging from 0.1% to 40.9%).
6 of the 24 practices showed an increase of 15% or more.
Get in quick, places are limited! Below is a testimony from a practice manager on their experience of participating in the previous activity.
“This was a very worthwhile exercise and has greatly benefited our clinic. GCPHN staff have been super supportive and approachable. Would not hesitate in recommending other clinics to take up the opportunity to be part of something so beneficial.”
