QI Behaviour Change Seminar

    Quality Improvement Behaviour Change Seminar – 26th September 2018

Can behavioural factors influence the delivery and sustainability of improvement initiatives?

The aim of the seminar was to provide delegates with thoughts/ideas/new ways of overcoming existing challenges. 

On this webpage you’ll find a copy of the presentations and links to relevant resources – if you would like more information please contact SISCC.


The new MAP training programme, from NES Psychology, is based on the MAP (Motivation, Action & Prompts) model of behaviour change, and will support you to:

• Effectively structure your behaviour change conversations
• Deciding which behaviour change techniques (BCTs) to use, and when to use them
• Use BCTs and existing skills with confidence
