UK EQUATOR Centre Seminar Series flyerPractising What We Preach: How we improved the publication guidelines for quality improvement research

If you can’t make it to the Leicester workshop, you will have another chance to catch the SQUIRE Group in Oxford. They will be giving a seminar at the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology, Oxford University, 1-2pm on 9 March. Entry is free, but please book via Eventbrite

Speakers Louise Davies and Greg Ogrinc, from the Dartmouth Institute in New Hampshire USA and Hilary Mosher, from the University of Iowa will describe the journey of updating the SQUIRE reporting guideline and how it helps you write clearly about three key components of your research

  • the use of theory in planning, implementing, and evaluating quality improvement work
  • the description of the context of the research
  • the study of the intervention(s).

They will provide examples from the literature to demonstrate how these components work together in a completed manuscript.
