The SusQI Academy

The Sustainability in Quality Improvement (SusQI) Academy provides CPD training and support to SusQI Leads to help them in embeddding sustainability into QI education and practice in their organisation. Organisations may choose to enrol a number of key staff in the Academy to access CSH expert support. Membership is available to those working within health professions education and/or in quality improvement, service transformation and health service delivery.

As a member of the SusQI Academy, individuals will receive support from the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare to build their competencies in SusQI education and/or leadership and can use this to work towards achieving SusQI Beacon Site status for their institution. The Centre will also provide support and mentoring for integrating SusQI into current QI practices, including developing training models, materials, frameworks and reviewing strategy.

The diagram below outlines the training and support offered to SusQI Academy members. Members may access any or all of the support available to meet their own needs and the needs of their organisation.
