Quality improvement project reports
Reports present data clearly and transparently so that it can be scrutinised by patients, the public, Board members, clinicians, managers and other staff.
Quality improvement data is anonymised so that confidential information regarding specific patients is not shared.
Reports should be produced with patient involvement to ensure they answer the questions patients are most interested in, and should include:
- What the quality improvement project is about
- Any standards, requirements or best practice criteria that were used
- Data, key findings, and shortfalls in quality which need addressing
- What was learned about the quality of patient care
- Action plan to address shortfalls, with timescales and named leads
