About Us

We are an integrated team supporting Clinical Research, Quality Improvement and Clinical Effectiveness 

Here at the Academy of Research and Improvement, we are committed to supporting people to undertake activities which can improve the care provided to patients at Solent NHS Trust. We work alongside Solent staff, the people who use the Trust's services and our various partners to identify and investigate new ideas and different ways of working and aim to share the learning and impact of this work in open and accessible ways.

We can provide support with a number of different activities:

  • Research
  • Quality Improvement
  • Clinical Effectiveness
  • Innovation (via Dragons’ Den)
  • Involving patients in improvement
  • Sharing learning & using evidence

As a team we both develop and deliver these activities, and support our teams and patients to do the same. We provide training, showcasing events, bespoke facilitation and an annual conference. Our aim is to equip our staff and patients with the skills and confidence to identify areas that could be improved, and tools to manage projects and measure impact.
