A SusQI Beacon Site is an institution or organisation that has integrated sustainability into the way they educate and train their learners/staff in quality improvement. Beacon Sites are recognised as leading in empowering staff and/or students to design and implement sustainable quality improvement as part of the transition towards a 'Net Zero' healthcare system.
Beacon Sites are recognised as leading in empowering staff and/or students to design and implement sustainable quality improvement and transformation. They are able to:
