Expressions of Interest are now open for our 2021 improvement science programs, delivered in partnership with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement.

Whether you are looking to work in teams on tackling an improvement project or aiming to further develop your coaching skills these programs have something for you! 

Improvement Science in Action (ISIA)  

ISIA is ideal for interdisciplinary teams to learn the essential methods and foundational skills of the science of improvement and apply them to a strategic project.

The program offers a hands-on approach and covers the concepts, tools, and methods you need to effectively drive your organisation’s improvement initiatives. The project-based design of the program drives participants to apply their learning to real work and achieve measurable results.  

Scheduled to commence in April 2021, the ISIA program will be delivered via virtual and in-person sessions over six months.
