​Apply Global Best Practices to Quality Management across Systems

If you are ready to be responsible for quality at the highest levels of your organisation, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI)’s Quality Leaders Professional Development Programme, beginning 22 January 2024, will help you develop and refine the skills you need. Whether you’re a Chief Quality Officer (CQO) already or in a quality leadership role with aims to advance, this ​professional development programme will enable you to develop the executive leadership skills required to put quality and safety at the top of the priority list for your organisation. 

This programme will share best practices, case studies, and real-world experiences of leading for quality to enable participants to build skills and knowledge through facilitated exercises and project-based learning. As a leader responsible for quality, you will need to engage and partner with your board and senior leadership colleagues. You will need to design an approach and infrastructure to support the delivery of high-quality, continuously improving care and improve what matters for your local population. 

US-based leaders can register for the next US offering of the Chief Quality Officer Professional Development Program.


​​​​​​​​The IHI Chief Quality Officer UK Professional Development Programme aims to demonstrate how to apply quality management best practices at a system level across an organisation.

​Course preparation materials will be available one month before the start of Session 1.

Support activities will be provided between the online sessions and referenced during the online and in-person sessions.

In-person workshops are planned for 12-13 March 2024 in London, UK, and 11-12 September 2024 in Edinburgh, UK.
