The Q Improvement Lab (Q Lab) was launched in 2017, and is an initiative working across the UK to test a bold new approach to making progress on health and care challenges.
The health and care system has a wealth of assets from which to draw: knowledge, expertise, evidence and examples of effective practice. But those in the midst of tackling tricky issues often lack the time and space to fully review what’s already known and what might be possible.
The Q Lab is an exciting opportunity to bring together organisations and individuals, to pool what is known and uncover new insights and ideas on challenges that many face.
The Q Lab’s first project, which ended in May 2018, explored what it would take for peer support to be widely available. The Lab’s second project will start in September 2018.
