This blog series explores the role of quality improvement in helping to redesign and enhance the services and systems that support children and families.
If we want to improve outcomes for children and families, we need to provide our communities and exisiting platforms, with an opportunity to learn, change and do better. Quality improvement offers a practical, step-wise approach to understanding problems and designing and testing possible responses. It empowers those on the frontline to work out how to solve the issues they face.
Quality improvement is one approach used by the Centre’s Service System Innovation team.
This blog series shares insights from our work with early childhood services in system redesign in Australia as well as practical tips from our international partners driving quality improvement overseas.
You’ll get a better sense of how quality improvement has been implemented and adapted in practice, and you’ll also come away with tips and strategies to help you do this work well. Our Centre will release a new blog post in the series every month.
