    • Thank you for the opportunity to share our experiences so far, at the event – we are in the process now of morphing our current QI practice into SusQI. We have been practicing the Virginia Mason form of QI since 2013, so my immediate plans are as follows… I’d love to hear from others on their experiences and any advice!

    No problem, and yes – Royal Devon & Exeter have actually held two competitions! Both had great savings – the 2019 competition teams also developed posters along with their case studies – if short on time they will give you a quicker look at their project aims, outcomes and learning.
    Best wishes,
    Rachel
