Data is an essential element of improvement, providing both focus on and proof of successful outcomes. During this two-day course participants will learn how measurement for improvement differs from that for accountability and research. Key tools and techniques for collecting, displaying and analysing data for improvement will be taught using a hands-on approach giving participants practical experience constructing and interpreting the various charts and graphs.
Anyone who wishes to gain a practical understanding of how measurement techniques can enhance improvement efforts. This course is particularly useful for those undertaking improvement work, or who are responsible for the outcomes.

“The Data for Improvement programme was very well facilitated with a fun two days of learning provided. As a nurse I am always looking for the rationale for things and the two days certainly taught me how to collect, demonstrate and analyse data from a ‘wanting a rationale’ perspective.
The learning from the two days I have put into practice includes looking at what data is collected and asking, ‘ is it useful?’, ‘have we collected the right information?’ Then, looking at the special cause rules to further analyse the information shown and look to improvement opportunities going forward.
The two days has given me a much greater insight into data and its usage.” – Chris Kerr, Compass Health
