Toolkit for Implementing Quality in Public Health: A Shared Responsibility

March 25, 2020 in ADPH Updates, PH System, Sector Led Improvement by Teresa Grandi

Translating the principles from Quality in Public Health: A Shared Responsibility into practical programmes of quality improvement may not appear straightforward especially given the large number of quality improvement tools that are available within public health and the different settings where they could potentially be used.  Because of this the Quality in Public Health toolkit was developed to map individual quality improvement resources to the overall Quality in Public Health document and facilitate local use.  This work is part of overall service development and should be seen in the context of other work and resources such as Public Health England’s approaches for reducing health inequalities.

The Quality in Public Health toolkit is a spreadsheet designed for use principally by public health teams within local government in England as an aid to the implementation of Quality in Public Health: A Shared Responsibility and as a part of sector led improvement.  It can be used to help assurance processes and in conjunction with local quality systems as part of service development and delivery. The Quality in Public Health toolkit brings together and maps a range of individual quality improvement documents and tools, identifying appropriate settings for use and linking them to sections of the overall document.  This will help teams identify what tools they can potentially use in different circumstances for practical implementation of Quality in Public Health and how they can access them.
