  • Provided funding of £100,000 to support a research team for 12 months to carry out original research.
  • Aimed to generate new knowledge on the barriers and facilitators for translating improvement skills and knowledge capability-building activities into frontline implementation.
  • Project began in 2016.

In March 2014, the Health Foundation published the findings of ‘Skilled for Improvement’, a research project that worked with improvement groups within two NHS sites to help them to learn collectively about proven improvement methods. This, in addition to other existing research, created a significant body of evidence that examines and evaluates the provision of capability-building activities to support improvement and transformation. 

Through our Translating improvement skills from training to implementation programme, we supported original research into identifying the barriers and facilitators for translating acquired improvement skills and knowledge capability-building activities into implementation in frontline practice.
