Workshop overview:

At the end of the course, trainees are expected to lead a team of health and/or community care providers to develop and implement a person-centred quality improvement project in their organisation.  Trainees are given six to nine months, after a 4-day workshop, to implement their respective project.  HODs in participating institutions are required to function as project sponsors to guide and support trainees in their project implementation journey. Project teams are also required to attend and present at two project development meetings.  These meetings facilitate sharing of project ideas and learnings, as well as to receive feedback from the programme faculty and service users. The course will culminate in a showcase of project posters during the graduation ceremony.  Shortlisted projects will be showcased as oral presentations.  

This training programme will equip trainees to:

  • Adopt a dialogue-based and solution-focused approach in quality improvement work
  • Utilize a goal-focused development and improvement approach
  • Integrate and build on their personal and shared experiences
  • Utilize and share newly acquired knowledge with their project teams
  • Support process development and collaboration among different stakeholders


Participants should possess these pre-requisites:

  • Have direct patient/client contact in their area of work
  • Is a team leader and/or in middle management
  • Have attended EPIC/Quality Improvement (QI) training (Participants without QI training will need to attend an additional one-day QI training organised by SingHealth Duke-NUS Institute of Patient Safety and Quality)

**Participants should be nominated by HOD to attend this workshop.  HOD is required to be listed as the project sponsors. Nomination of candidates will close before 15 March 2024. Successful applicants of ESTHER Coach workshop will receive a confirmation email by first week of April 2024
