The QUALITY SYSTEM ROADMAP COURSE
I'm pleased to bring you my complete strategic quality system - for the first time in an online course - including some tips and tactics I've never taught in a live workshop!
Great quality systems that achieve great care must be specifically designed and implemented for success. The QSR is the only step by step course that synthesises best practice and experience into a strategic path toward creating great point of care and service experiences, within the complexity of human service organisations.
Over five video modules, you'll develop your toolkit - and start applying it - to build a strategic, point of service and care-based quality system, including:
- Six Actions: steps to designing a quality system that gets real results for consumers and staff
- Six Accelerators: my best tools (some I've never shared before) and tactics to drive successful implementation
The Actions cover the essentials of design, engagement and planning; and the Accelerators give you my best tools, tactics and templates to drive implementation towards great care as business as usual.

Here's what some QSR course 'road testers' think!
Robyn Wright, Quality Improvement Lead, Alfred Health
Cathy is able to translate the language of strategic quality planning to a language that is meaningful for the frontline staff. The modules truly are a roadmap that take you through a step by step process. It's applicable to all staff, but in particular leaders and managers.
Cathy Jones, National Director, Clinical Governance, Healthscope
Many organisations are pretty good at quality and safety compliance tasks – but are heartily sick of them, and wonder “is that all there is?” Here is a super opportunity to make quality and safety leadership more inspirational for staff and consumers alike - and this course will help you deliver that. The QSR Course would be extremely useful for Board members, CEOs, Directors of Nursing, Quality Managers, and middle managers - and particularly useful for members of an organisation’s Quality Committee.
Ann Elkins, Director Strategy, Development and Marketing, EACH
Thanks Cathy for capturing in this format your practical, “cutting straight through to the essence of the issue” style. This series is a fantastic way to focus on the building blocks to ensure that the quality program is something that does not sit in the corner to be dusted off for accreditation, but is something that is alive in the organisation and does make a difference at point of care for every person every time.
Dr Narelle Watson, Director Quality, Safety and Patient Experience, Western Health
Cathy is a master at conveying information on quality systems, drawing on her extensive experience and providing practical examples to demystify clinical governance. Health care workers strive to provide high quality care and Cathy's modules supply the tools and knowledge to assist organisations to consistently achieve best care.
Andrea Russell, Director Clinical Services, Great Ocean Road Health
The course is relevant to all health, aged and community care with examples given on how to apply the lessons to different areas. Clear tasks set at the end of each module enable practical work to commence. At GORH we could use this for new Board and staff members who have not participated in the development of our Great Care Framework, and also for existing staff as a refresher.
Dawn Griffiths , Acting Executive General Manager People & Culture, Regis Aged Care
The pace and delivery of the modules are fantastic and it feels like you are in the room with Cathy. The exercises are clearly laid out and give an opportunity for group learning along with the online delivery. As a HR Leader it is reassuring to see the connection of governance, people and purpose.
Don't find yourself in a year's time with the same problems of engaging staff and mediocre results - follow the Quality System Roadmap!

'Hi Cathy, finished your 6 part LEEDIT course today and loved it. It may even replace my current PDCA guidance!' - Audrey Ellis, Quality Manager, EACH.
