SusQI Showcase

Are you excited to hear success stories from others making sustainable changes and shaping the future of healthcare? Discover the latest developments in Sustainable Quality Improvement at at our upcoming SusQI Showcase 2024!

This free online event is open to all health professionals who are interested in incorporating more sustainability into their clinical practice, and is designed to support healthcare organisation leads in QI education and practice, clinical and academic leaders, healthcare professionals and students to successfully implement SusQI within their organisation, department, or individual practice/teaching by showcasing a variety of examples of SusQI in action.

CSH’s annual SusQI Showcase will take place on Wednesday 19th June 14.00-16.30, available to join FREE online.

What is SusQI?

Sustainability in Quality Improvement (SusQI) is an approach to improving healthcare in a holistic way, by assessing quality and value through the lens of a “triple bottom line”. Triple bottom line analysis looks at the social, financial, and environmental impact of any intervention, to truly assess its value whilst aiming to improve patient health outcomes.

SusQI is designed to embed sustainability into existing QI methods and practice, providing healthcare workers with the tools to create sustainable change within their workplace through QI projects. Changes are focused on the CSH principles of sustainable clinical practice(link is external): prevention, patient empowerment and self-care, lean clinical pathways, and low-carbon alternatives.

Many trusts across the UK have been implementing SusQI projects into their practice over the last two years, many of which have also won prestigious awards as a result. Do you want to add your team or your trust to that list and help make healthcare more sustainable and improve patient outcomes? Then why not come and learn how!

What Can You Expect At The SusQI Showcase?

This year we have sessions from Elaine Mead (executive director of Improvement Care and Compassion), Dr Sonia Chanchlani (Sustainability, Climate and Health Senior Fellow at the University of Melbourne) and Dr Katherine Brown (GP & Director of Greener Practice) alongside SusQI examples from Sheffield Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust and Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust.
