This guide explains how to use the AQuA Six Step Improvement Model in your organisation or department to structure your improvement efforts. For decades we have used defined problem solving structures to help us structure our thinking when treating patients. This is to ensure we don’t jump to conclusions or miss vital steps when diagnosing and treating our patients. In the same way, the Aqua Six Step Improvement Model, structures your improvement efforts to ensure you achieve the right solution, deliver benefits for your service users and carers and ensures your efforts are sustained.
With a structured improvement approach you can ensure that the solutions you implement improve patient and carer experience, staff experience and increase efficiency.
