Celebrating the remarkable achievements of our QIL Program Graduates

Over the past nine months, these passionate individuals dedicated themselves to driving positive change in their organisations.

Everyone is capable of making a difference, and this was clearly demonstrated by our exceptional cohort of 2022/23 Virtual Quality Improvement Lead (QIL) program graduates.  

Program participants undertook a quality improvement project that related specifically to their organisation. Over the past nine months, participants were supported by expert faciltators with the methodology and practical tools to effectively define and implement their projects.    

Our recent cohort consisted of a diverse mix of professionals from around Australia, working across a wide array of sectors including cancer care, paediatrics, women’s health, and more.  

Course facilitator and Director of the ACHS Improvement Academy, Professor Bernie Harrison gave very positive feedback to participants, saying, “Congratulations everyone on great projects, we’ve had a fantastic scope of projects that were of a very high standard.” 

The aim of the QIL program is to equip participants with the knowledge and tools for quality improvement. Most importantly, the program supports participants to become catalysts for change in their organisation. The impact of the program extends beyond its duration and seeks to lay a foundation for ongoing improvement. The successes achieved by QIL program participants continue to have meaningful impacts on healthcare delivery, elevating standards of care and enhancing patient outcomes.
