Learning and Development Manager
NHS Health ScotlandScotland
After 15+ years in learning and workforce development, a change of role provided me with the opportunity to explore, test, apply and reflect on different QI tools and approaches in my practice. I also had the opportunity to learn from others who are already applying QI in the area of public health and I am using this learning to engage more public health colleagues in dialogue about how QI can be maximised in public health.
I am working with several partner organisation to help create space where public health colleagues and QI practitioners can learn from each other about how their collective action could contribute to a Scotland in which everyone has the opportunity to thrive.
I am part way through an MSc in Systems thinking in practice.
I am curious about how people learn best and what leads them to challenge their assumptions and perspectives. I am also interested in exploring the role of reflexive practice, networks, facilitation and combining other methodologies with QI to improve complex 'softer' situations.
