Support to Achieve QI QoF Domain

Quality improvement is a new domain within the 2019/20 General Medical Services (GMS) contract Quality & Outcomes Framework (QOF) in Prescribing Safety & End of Life Care. Being skilled in Quality Improvement has been recognised as a key role for healthcare professionals (CQC March 2018).

The Advancing Quality Alliance (AQuA) are offering general practice members tailored support to help practices to achieve the QI domain of the QOF in Prescribing Safety and End of Life Care.

As part of your AQuA CCG membership for 2019/20 we can provide free support for you to:

  • Recognise areas of care which require improvement (QI001 and QI003)
  • Address these through QI methodologies (QI001 and QI003)
  • Plan and share learning across your network (QI002 and QI004)
  • Participate in QI activities through diagnostics, planning & networking

To achieve these 74 QoF points, AQuA can facilitate a series of tailored 3 x 2 hour WebExs with individual coaching to help you. In addition, there are opportunities for one to one telephone QI coaching advice if more appropriate. Download a flyer outlining how AQuA can support your practice to achieve the QI QoF domain.
