Pathway - Improvement layer

pathway improvement layer

This layer is designed for those who wish to develop a deeper level of knowledge and skills in relation to infection prevention and control and quality improvement and lead on or actively participate in an infection prevention and control improvement project in their place of work.

An infection prevention and control worked example and tools are provided to illustrate each stage of the improvement journey to provide context.

This layer incorporates quality improvement programmes currently offered by NES at Foundation, Practitioner and Leader levels and builds on knowledge and skills in the application of the science of improvement.

It includes:

  • how to develop, test, and implement changes including identifying high-leverage change ideas and testing them
  • how to use data for improvement and other key quality improvement tools.


The improvement layer is available on Turas learn.

You can also find tools and resources on quality improvement in the QI Zone on Turas Learn.
