q4a currently runs 2 courses: Springboard Foundation and Advanced.
Both courses consist of a highly participative 5 day course of blended theory and practice. The courses are designed for delivery to healthcare professionals of all disciplines and are applicable to all levels of experience.
Course participants design and implement a real quality improvement (QI) project of their own choosing. This process enables participants to adopt reusable QI methodology, leadership & team skills that will empower them to transform care within their health system. Post course mentorship from the Springboard faculty is offered and is tailored to the needs of individual course participants and that of their QI projects.
The Foundation Course focuses on QI methodology and project start-up while the Advanced Course, delivered 3-6 months later, teaches further leadership skills to help embed change. This is leadership for ALL, not just for people in leadership roles.
Springboard’s courses make Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) ‘real and alive’ as the science of improvement and the art of leadership are taught through ‘doing’.
