Research, Innovation and Quality Improvement (RIQI)

RIQI is our collaboration across ResearchInnovation and Quality Improvement. RIQI is a shared approach to work with colleagues and services to improve health outcomes, increase clinical effectiveness, enhance patient experience and translate our learning into better outcomes for everyone. We want all staff to get involved with RIQI—here are some of the ways we support our organisation to continue to develop:

  • We run a comprehensive ‘RIQI’ learning and development programme to grow skills and capabilities across the organisation at all levels.
  • We create opportunities for staff to share learning, ideas and successes through a number of communications channels and events. For example, we hold an annual RIQI event where staff showcase their work and send out a regular bulletin to all staff to celebrate achievements and inspire future projects.
  • We cultivate partnerships—by working closely with our hospital charity CW+ we form partnerships with external organisations to bring new innovation and insights to improve our services.
  • We develop clinical leadership opportunities. For example, we have two clinical innovation fellows, innovation business partners and research leads in each division. 
  • Working with CW+ we increase opportunities for ‘ideas generation’ by providing seed funding for projects and running targeted calls for ideas .
  • We work with our patients and communities to co-produce improvements and research projects, leading to better outcomes for all who use our services.
