Participants successfully complete Improving together: Advisors programme

Building Leadership & Capability System safety
29 May 2024

Congratulations to the recent graduates of the Te Tāhū Hauora Health Quality & Safety Commission Improving together: Advisors programme, who completed their final course day in late May 2024.

Participants of the programme were awarded the Advanced health quality improvement micro-credential that has been assessed to be equivalent to 40 credits at level 5 on the New Zealand Qualifications and Credentials Framework.

Improving together: Advisors aims to develop and expand the quality improvement skills and knowledge required to become an effective facilitator of change. Participants gain an understanding of elements of the broader complexity of the system of health and disability care delivery and develop strategies to lead quality improvement activities within this complexity.

The 2023/24 cohort began in August 2023 and was completed by 22 people. There was approximately 400 hours of learning during that time, so it was a big commitment for the participants and their sponsor organisations. 

The improvement projects undertaken by the participants over the course were completed during a time of change in the health sector. It took great perseverance and commitment from those involved to see these projects to completion.

 Participants came from health and disability sector organisations across the motu, including Health New Zealand ‒ Te Whatu Ora, aged residential care and primary care.

Congratulations to those who took part. We look forward to seeing how you continue to use the skills learned during the programme to continue making improvements in the Aotearoa New Zealand health and disability system.
