Quality Improvement Building Blocks Framework

Dr Peter Chamberlain, 2016

The Quality Improvement Building Blocks Framework programme will supports you to understand and self-diagnose your Trust’s key concepts and characteristics to progress your journey as a high performing organisation. 

Using the NHS Quest network, alongside your organisational development opportunities, this programme will provide ongoing support to complement your Quality strategy.

What is the Quality Improvement Building Blocks Framework?

Developed by Dr Peter Chamberlain, the Quality Improvement Building Blocks Framework (QIBBF) has been designed and tested to help organisations identify layers and components to build an effective learning system through integration of key improvement principles.

The framework is made up of 3 main layers and 12 building blocks which are underpinned by 60 specific development areas which organisations can focus on.
