Course overview

The Healthcare Improvement Project module offers resources to assist you in the practical implementation of an improvement project in your clinical area. The module systematically clarifies the steps required in conducting an improvement project and provides you with the planning, data collection and data analysis techniques required to implement a quality improvement project within your organisation.

This module helps you to put the theory examined in the Clinical Governance module into practice in your workplace.

It equips you with:

  • Tools with which to analyse your clinical microsystem.
  • Various methodologies with which to generate intelligent information and
  • The ideas about how to implement changes and work towards continued improvement.


The module is based on learning activities that include discussions, investigations, readings, and practical tasks. Interactions take place via asynchronous online forums.
