The Institute For Continous Improvement In Public Services
ICiPS is a charity working to ‘Embed continuous improvement in the delivery of public services through education’. To this end, ICiPS is a catalyst for the creation, collation, and dissemination of information that supports the creation of continuous improvement cultures.
For the ICiPs this isn’t about formulaic approaches to improvement. It is about the principles and behaviours required to embed improvement as the ‘way work is done’. This synergy with the work we are doing in Q has resulted in us joining forces to make membership available to you. We’ll be working closely with colleagues at ICiPs to provide opportunities such as access to events and joint working.
ISQua have created the first global Fellowship Programme for quality in health care. It is internationally recognised and unique, offering networking opportunities, skills development and education through an extensive network of quality in health care professionals.
We are exploring offering a small number of fellowships to members in late 2017. Look out for more details here and we will also update you via our newsletter.
