Improving patient care

Introduction to Quality Improvement

Using the outputs of audit coupled with the evidence from research, guidelines and standards the stroke Managed Clinical Networks (MCNs) should develop an Action Plan to ensure service improvement in relation to the delivery of stroke care.

This is driven by the Healthcare Quality Strategy of NHS Scotland published in 2010.

“By establishing a shared understanding of quality and a commitment to place it at the heart of everything we do, the Quality Strategy represents a unique and important opportunity for all of us to work together to our mutual benefit to make our NHS even better, for now and in the future”
