Greener Healthcare Quality Improvement Toolkit

The PCRS Greener Respiratory Healthcare Quality Improvement (QI) toolkit has been developed to support HCPs working in the primary care setting to understand and evaluate the environmental impact of their clinical practice, identify ways to reduce this impact, set goals and priorities and evaluate progress.

The toolkit has been designed around the PCRS Greener Respiratory Healthcare Pathway which signposts the user to a curated suite of resources and materials to guide and support HCPs in their journey towards sustainable respiratory healthcare.

The PCRS Greener Respiratory Healthcare QI toolkit will enable you to:

  • Understand the environmental impact of providing respiratory healthcare for patients with respiratory disease in the primary care setting.
  • Identify both quick wins and longer-term strategies to reduce the environmental impact of respiratory healthcare.
  • Become a Greener Respiratory Healthcare Champion in your local area and identify ways to work with other stakeholders to drive the Green agenda in all aspects of health, social and local government decision-making.

The toolkit has been developed to enable even those not familiar with the QI process and who may need step by step guidance and support, to undertake QI initiatives focused on Greener Respiratory Healthcare. Additional sources of information and support about QI in primary care in the UK are provided in Appendix 1.
