Model for Improvement - Virtual Bootcamp

Closes 1 Dec 2024

Opened 8 Feb 2024


The Model for Improvement is a framework designed to develop, test and implement changes that lead to improvement. The Model is used and endorsed by the Scottish Government and is credited with bringing about improvements in the NHS.

It is being rolled out across Aberdeen City Council and Community Planning Aberdeen partners to create a city-wide culture of quality improvement and improve outcomes for the people of Aberdeen.

This course is open to all Community Planning Partners, but particularly useful if you are responsible for delivering improvements to your service but is open to anyone with a desire to improve services!

This virtual ‘bootcamp’ will be delivered in two 3 hour sessions. You only need to book into the first session and you will then receive appointments for both sessions. Attendance at both sessions is required for you to be registered as having completed the bootcamp. Completion of the bootcamp is a requirement for all CPA Project Leads.

Our next virtual bootcamps are on the following dates:

  • 20/02/2024 and 22/02/2024 09.30-12.30
  • 01/10/2024 and 03/10/2024 09.30-12.30

Over the 2 sessions we will introduce you to the Model for Improvement and provide you with tools, skills and resources that can be used on a wide range of projects. The Model breaks down change into manageable pieces and allows you to test each change on a small scale to see if it is making a difference! The workshop will cover the below

  • Develop your project charter
  • Understand the Plan Do Study Act (PDSA) approach to continuous improvement
  • Learn how to use driver diagrams
  • Use data to inform your project

Between the sessions we will ask you to complete a short exercise in which you will be applying one of the tools explored and we’ll ask you to share this at the second session.

Once you have completed the bootcamp, you will be able to take what you’ve learned and apply it to your projects – and you’ll have access to an online community of improvement peers who can support you on your improvement journey!
