A framework and tools to develop effective quality improvement programs in european healthcare


Quality improvement (QI) measures aim to improve health services. However, commonly used strategies for QI do not change professional practice or improve patient care. The objective of this proposal is to narrow the gap between research and practice by developing a research-based approach to QI. We will establish a framework for the selection, implementation and evaluation of QI interventions that address identified barriers to change and that can be tailored to local circumstances. Methods to identify the causes of sub-optimal care will be developed and interventions will be designed to address identified problems. Internet-based tools will be developed to help clinicians, policy-makers and others to transfer research findings into clinical practice. Expected results include a suite of tools for identifying barriers to change and a framework for selecting appropriate interventions.
