Quality Improvement Tools

The Clinical Excellence Commission provides a range of tools and resources to support NSW Health staff to improve the quality of care for our patients. The tools and resources include graphs, charts, diagrams and mapping tools designed to help you plot the data around your intended quality improvement initiative.

By using these tools and resources throughout your Quality Improvement initiative, you and your team can gain a better understanding of the underlying problems that are causing the issue, gain insight as to how best to go about the improvement and develop an effective strategy to complete your project.

Each tool includes background information and instructions on how and when it should be used. Accompanying templates (Excel or PowerPoint) have been developed and are available for staff to download and use with their own data. Links to instructional videos have also been included for most tools, to further assist in the explanation of the resource.


We welcome your feedback on the usefulness and relevance of the individual tools. If you have any ideas or suggestions on how we can improve these resources, please take a moment to complete the evaluation survey found at the bottom of each of the individual tools' page.

If you are after additional information or tools, please email the CEC Academy Staff.
