Think Kidneys Programme Update: Kidney Quality Improvement Partnership (KQuIP) 

KQuIP has successfully delivered 5 regional QI days so far across the UK. KQuIP is now working closely with all of these regions in order to support and embed QI within day to day practice. In order to do this KQuIP has designed a QI methodology and education package to follow on from each of the regional days. All the regions involved have signed up to this model and there is a dedicated regional programme manager funded through Kidney Care UK that will be supporting each region in the delivery of one of the KQuIP national priority projects; Transplant First, MAGIC and Home Therapies.

KQuIP is also looking to deliver further regional days in 2018 with the South West region and a national paediatrics network already sign up. KQuIP are also in discussion with a number of regions for regional days in 2019. For more information on the regional days and example of how these days run please click here.

E-Learning Platform – The Renal Association has purchased an Elearning platform that will be free to access for all users and will link in with KQuIP to ensure free high quality training can be made available to those within the kidney community who would benefit from it. More information to follow in the coming months.
