Patient involvement

Patients are part of your culture and context. Patient involvement in our QI work means we see our work through the eyes of the people who need our care. This helps us to design, implement and evaluate each individual quality improvement project.

The position of the patient involvement ring in the QI wheel indicates it acts as scaffolding, to support any QI project.

This section of the website provides you with ideas on how to harness patient input into the design and delivery of your projects and their measures of success.
