An Improvement Advisor provides extra support for those projects working on one of the Trust’s priority areas. They also have expertise in improvement methods and tools.
They also have responsibility for:
- Teaching to staff and service users in improvement methods and tools
- Strategic support for the divisions in defining improvement priorities, aligning QI work and building QI capability
- Regular supervision sessions with Improvement Coaches in the division
- Alert clinical / service director and sponsors of projects that are not progressing
Improvement Coaches work closely with the Improvement Advisors to undertake coaching of QI projects in their service or geographical area.
You may consider engaging an Improvement Coach to help with ad hoc support such as advice on how to access training or choosing your measures. You could ask for help with the setup of your QI project or if you're stuck and need some guidance to move forward. Improvement Coaches sometimes become part of your QI project team to coach projects end to end. This usually would only apply if your project aligns to a key trust priority area.
