Wave 6 Improvement Science in Action in Leyton

Wave 6 ISIA

This week our Wave 6 cohort completed their 3 day Improvement Science in Action (ISIA)workshop at the Great Hall, in Leyton, East London. From 16-18 October 130 our new ISIA trainees came together for the start of a 6 month QI learning programme.

Wave 6 in East London follows hot on the heels of Wave 5 ISIA in Bedfordshire and Lutonwhich started in September, and means that over the last couple of months we have seen the launch of well over 50 new quality improvement projects at ELFT. Staff will develop these new and existing QI projects throughout the training and apply their new skills directly to improve our services.  See a summary of some of the projects Wave 6 will be working on below.




ISIA teaches QI project teams to refine their aims, use Driver Diagrams to understand their system and prioritise change ideas, measure data for improvement, test changes using Plan Do Study Act (PDSA), and introduces many other concepts and tools that teams can use throughout the project’s lifecycle.

ELFT have now trained over 500 staff, service users and carers in ISIA, equipping them with core skills to lead improvement to all our services. You can follow the progress of Wave 5 & 6 trainees and projects on the microsite and on QI Life.
