In Denmark there is a great tradition to perform Quality improvement, but the knowledge sharing on QI across generations is sparse.
Results and “take home messages” from the Quality Circles will be shared on FYAMs webpage and on Facebook. In September 2015 there will be an open online Quality Circle on Facebook.
FYAM has applied and received funding from Quality units in Denmark. This makes it possible to organize Quality circles throughout the country. The Quality circles each consist of 6 trainees, 6 general practitioners and a doctor or healthcare professional, selected based on the topic. The group meets for an after-hour meeting discussing one of 5 pre-selected topics, which are distinguished by being perceived as difficult to deal with in general practice. The discussions are based on cases or data submitted by the participants and address both organizational as well as academic challenges. The discussion begins after a short presentation of the topic by the invited doctor or healthcare professional.
With this Quality campaign FYAM would like to show that the collaboration across generations of practitioners and the cooperation with the secondary sector is important for the sustainability of the quality improvement. Furthermore encourage others to implement quality circles across generations.
