King's Improvement Science: step 2 — deciding what to improve and assessing the feasibility of a quality improvement project


This resource has been developed by members of the King’s Improvement Science team using the experience gained while selecting and supporting a range of quality improvement projects.

This resource aims to help you formulate ideas for collaborative quality improvement projects which are likely to last for a period of weeks or months. It outlines key questions that should be asked before you start a quality improvement project. 

If you have more than one idea, working through the questions and discussing the answers with colleagues, managers, patients, service users and other stakeholders should help you decide which one is feasible and likely to generate benefits.
