Improving care quality is at the heart of what we do. Our QI interventions, which we operate through our Sweeney Programme, focus on patients and are driven by developing truly patient-centred care. We operate bespoke training programmes for healthcare teams based on proven tools such as Experience-Based Co-Design (EBCD) and Patient and Family Centred Care (PFCC). We also run collaboratives in which several teams learn and improve together as a cohort. Through our Sweeney Community we seek to share learning across a network of people interested in patient-centred care.
because understanding and responding to the needs of all people is what delivers the highest quality healthcare
