Sustainability in QI teaching

Dear QI educator,

Following the recent publication of the NHS Net Zero Report, it is clear that the health workforce needs to be equipped both to practise sustainably and to contribute to innovation for a zero carbon health service.


The Centre for Sustainable Healthcare(CSH) is running a two-year project (2019-21) in partnership with Health Education England, the Health Foundation and KCL to support the integration of sustainability into education on quality improvement. The approach is already being trialled in a handful of UK medical and nursing programmes (both undergraduate and postgraduate), where it is capturing the enthusiasm of educators and students, and is being shared with the GMC.


We would like to make you aware of the approach and the resources and support available through the project. We have a new dedicated website packed full of useful, free resources for running a sustainable QI project, as well as an educator pack with template teaching sessions:

Educator support:

In addition to the existing CSH online course on Sustainability in Quality Improvement, we have set up a Teaching Sustainable Quality Improvement online course for educators which we are running on 27th January 2021 and 31st March 2021. This two-part course comprises 4 hours of interactive self-study followed by a 4-hour online workshop, using the ‘SusQI’ framework to help health professions educators and students to integrate sustainability concepts into mainstream quality improvement teaching. The course is equally applicable to all health professions and to the undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Best wishes,

Frances Mortimer
