Remote Vocational Training Scheme
The Improvement Foundation delivers quality improvement training  to registrars in rural and remote areas as part of the Remote Vocational Training Scheme. The Remote Vocational Training Scheme provides a vocational training program for medical practitioners in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and remote and isolated communities throughout Australia.

Twice a month, third-year registrars based in remote and rural general practices and health services join a webinar to learn about quality improvement principles, such as building a practice team, the Model for Improvement, clinical audit tools and data quality.
The webinar training has been an opportunity for a very diverse range of doctors from across Australia to come together and hear from some of the experts in the field of quality improvement. The training also offers the opportunity for participants to discuss some of the unique challenges they face working in relative isolation.

Rural Health West – Western Australia
Over a 12 month period, the Improvement Foundation  has delivered monthly quality improvement webinars for Rural Health West. Rural Health West workforce includes some of Australia’s most remote medical practices. Providing equal access to training programs for health practices that are located over 1000 kilometres from the nearest regional centre can be challenging.

The Improvement Foundation webinar series ensures that even with participants being remote they are always engaged in the training. With years of experience in delivering online training, the Improvement Foundation’s course instructors provide interactive and engaging course content.

The quality improvement sessions have been well attended and covered topics on quality improvement tools, and measuring for improvement. Future sessions will explore access to primary care and using quality improvement to achieve better outcomes in chronic disease management.

Feedback from general practitioners about Rural Health West’s professional development courses has been overwhelming positive with general practitioners stating that Rural Health West’s conferences and workshops continue to be highly valued and meet many of their learning needs.
