Quality improvement toolkit

This toolkit uses the common language of quality improvement. It shares some of the techniques underpinning the improvement work of the Health Quality & Safety Commission. This will help teams working on quality improvement activities understand if the changes they are making have resulted in the desired improvement. It was initially designed to help health care staff undertake quality improvement, specifically those working in aged residential care however has more general application.
