The Advancing Quality Alliance (AQuA) is a membership body which aims to improve the quality of healthcare. We are funded by our Members who include: Foundation Trusts, Mental Health Trusts, Clinical Commissioning Groups, Commissioning Support Services and the North West Strategic Health Authority. AQuA has a unique opportunity to act as a catalyst for change across the North West of England and beyond.
What does AQuA do?
AQuA’s approach is to work with our Members to promote and share knowledge of best practice to improve the quality of healthcare. We provide improvement training to our Members to strengthen their organisations as well as intelligence and comparative information to stimulate innovation.
AQuA does this in the following ways
Provides easy access to the best available evidence and to examples of good practice locally and globally. Supplies benchmarked intelligence to highlight opportunities for improvement and to measure progress.
Presents opportunities for learning about improvement for all groups of staff, It will bring together like minded individuals in ‘communities of practice’ to develop their knowledge and skills as part of the AQuA Associates programme.
