Being a QuIL
Being a QuIL is fantastic opportunity to network and develop yourself personally and professionally as well as improving the quality of critical care for patients. Here’s what some of our QuILs have to say;
Being part of the quality improvement link nurse team at LTHTR for the LSCCCN has given us a great opportunity to implement change within our critical care unit for the benefit and safety of our patients, using the DREAMS initiative from the network we have successfully implemented the role of a Sleep Guardian to promote sleep overnight and reduce delirium on the unit.
We have presented our work at the LSCCCN conference and have the opportunity to present this work again at the British Association of Critical Care Nurse conference in September 2019. We continue to improve practice by completing monthly audits on CAM-ICU and lung protective ventilation in an aim to standardise care throughout the network.
Claire and Sharon LTH
I have been part of the QuILs team on Critical Care at Blackburn for over a year now. Taking on this role has given me a new challenge within my place of work. Working alongside my fellow QuILs team and the wider members of the network has given me an insight in to how things work on a larger scale. I feel by being given this opportunity I have been able to develop my knowledge base and gain a more in depth understanding of quality improvement and its importance, not only in the day to day running of the unit but also in terms of how such developments impact on our patients.
