The QI Connect WebEx series was established in 2014 at the request of clinicians who asked for an opportunity to learn from international leaders in the field of improvement and innovation. Using WebEx allows speakers to facilitate from their own desk, and participants to link in and learn from wherever they are.
There have been some truly amazing speakers to date, including; Don Berwick, Marshall Ganz, Professor Bob Wachter, Maureen Bisognano, Gary Kaplan, Atul Gawande… the list goes on!
Due to the calibre of speakers, interest in the series has grown on a global scale, with over 1,000 organisations across 62 countries now linking in. From a small test of change at one university in Glasgow, QI Connect now has 88 universities linking in (from Dundee to Harvard!) bringing students together in classrooms to listen, learn and share.
