Improve the quality of care.
The collaborating centre aims to strengthen the evidence base for improving the quality of care. This five year programme of work is intended to develop as a platform for sustainable activity and growth, and to become a national resource for the best research and practice.
The Scottish Improvement Sciences Collaborating Centre (SISCC) is led by the University of Dundee, with Professor Jan Clarkson as Director.
Our current research activities within the workstreams relate to:
- Knowledge into Action at Scale – can large scale education approaches deliver effective and cost-efficient training to improve health and social care?
- Maternal and Child Health – implementation of evidence-into-practice to improve outcomes for babies and families in neonatal units.
- Older People’s Health & Wellbeing – safer prescribing in primary care and benefits for physical activity.
Our ultimate goal is to inform action that will have a positive impact on four outcome domains:
- Safety & Reliability
- Care & Compassion
- Reducing Inequalities
- Health & Wellbeing
