As part of our engagement with the public Dr Linda Pomeroy presented the CLAHRC’s iQUASER study at a recent Bart’s Health research evening.
The event gave us a chance to showcase the project which is evaluating the impact of implementing QUASER – a Board-level intervention NHS Trust leaders can use to diagnoses the strengths and weaknesses in their approach to delivering quality improvement.
Linda discussed the importance of NHS Boards setting the direction for Trusts and leading on efforts to improve quality and safety, and how this impacts patient care at ward level.
Our thanks to Bart’s Health for giving us the chance to present our work.
