Quality Improvement and Innovation Hub editorial board

Welcome to the Quality Improvement and Innovation Hub (QIIH). As part of developing the QIIH we are setting up a central repository where all staff can access resources for work place quality improvement.

The repository will include:

a) Templates
b) Tools and resources
c) Events: Masterclasses, grand rounds, creative spaces, sharing best practice
d) Work based learning programmes
e) Mentors and expertise biographies
f) Publications written by staff
g) Shared purpose competences and related self assessment tools
h) Stories of best practice
i) Project summaries.

We are inviting you to apply to become a member of the Editorial Board that will review all submissions prior to their publication on the repository.

We are looking for staff who are willing to review documents; critique submissions; have quality improvement as their mission; and who would like to develop their own expertise around enabling others to submit their quality improvement
work. We are hoping to appoint our first QIIH Editorial Board by 31st July. We will then set our terms of reference with our first meeting planned for the 21st August.
Your term on the Editorial Board will be for a limited amount of time, and the commitment will depend on the number of submissions we received as the QIIH grows.

We invite you to offer an expression of interest to
Lisasheene@nhs.net by Monday 21st July so that the Steering Group can review the expressions of interest and appoint the Editorial Board.
