A trainee doctor’s perspective on incorporating quality improvement in postgraduate medical training

Trainees leading quality improvement is the first report delivered by the FMLM Trainee Steering Group (TSG) Think Tank, which was established in 2015. The report builds on work by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges and outlines recommendations for training for junior doctors with QI as an integral part.

Welcoming the report, Peter Lees, FMLM Chief Executive and Medical Director, said: "Quality improvement needs to move from something done by evangelists to something which is routine in the relentless quest for better patient care. Therefore, all doctors need to be conversant with and competent in the science of QI, which begs the question when and how do we learn? FMLM welcomes this report as a thoroughly practical guide which addresses these questions. It is written by the experts, talented trainees with the desire to make a difference."
