Supporting your Career in Quality Improvement

No matter what stage of your career you are in, the ACHS Improvement Academy are committed to supporting your professional development.

The ACHS Improvement Academy (IA) believe in high quality healthcare for all, and this value drives our commitment to championing quality improvement as key to improving healthcare outcomes.  

IA Director, Assoc Professor Bernie Harrison, says Quality Improvement (QI) in healthcare is “the science of process management, and the more we can perfect steps in that process, the better outcomes and experience of care for patients”. QI is a methodology for improving the quality of healthcare services, a continuous process that involves identifying problems, understanding why they exist and identifying key areas for improvement, implementing changes, and measuring the impact of those changes.   

Our wide range of quality improvement (QI) courses provide healthcare professionals with the skills and tools they need to continuously improve their provision of care and services for patients, consumers and their families. From early career to experienced leaders, we offer a wide range of courses for healthcare professionals to gain new skills and knowledge in quality improvement science.

Wherever you are at in your QI journey we are here to support you.

ACHS Improvement Academy is committed to supporting healthcare professionals throughout their careers. Explore the diverse range of courses offered at the Improvement Academy:
