TIPSQI Mentor Sessions 2022

How to mentor a Quality Improvement Project


  • Are you a clinical or educational supervisor for foundation year doctors in the North-West of England Deanery?

  • Would you like to learn how to supervise a foundation doctor undertaking a quality improvement project?

  • Are you looking for an introduction to quality improvement concepts?


We recognise that quality improvement methodology is a subject that is infrequently covered within many undergraduate or post-graduate curricula; and our aim is to support foundation year doctors to complete a quality improvement project in order to pass their foundation ARCP. In addition to this, we recognise consultants who supervise these projects may benefit from additional training in this area; and to that end we are offering a training session on how to supervise a quality improvement project.

Within the session we will cover:

  • The evidence behind quality improvement

  • Barriers to completing a quality improvement project

  • Deming’s Model for Improvement

  • Introduction to QI Tools and methodology, and how explain these concepts to F1/F2 doctors

  • Common pitfalls in quality improvement

  • Tips for how to guide foundation trainees through their first quality improvement project

  • How educational/clinical supervisors can supervise QIPs

These sessions are held virtually on zoom and have been very popular over the past 2 years. 

If you register your interest using the link below we will ensure that you are contacted when the dates for 2022 are released.

TIPSQI Summer Showcase 2022

To showcase the amazing QIPs being undertaken across the North West, we put on a yearly summer showcase. 

This usually takes place in June/July and is a great opportunity to create a poster and improve your skills at poster presentations at a regional event. We also select 3 QIPs for our oral presentation and allocate prizes, alongside an inspiring keynote speech.

Watch this space for more information in the near future…
