The SusQI Education Project? 

Putting SusQI Theory into Practice


The Centre for Sustainable Healthcare (CSH) has developed the landmark Sustainability in Quality Improvement (SusQI) Education project to equip health professionals to innovate for a more environmentally, socially and financially sustainable health service. The project’s primary aim is to integrate sustainability into all current QI teaching in order to improve the knowledge and skills required for sustainable healthcare.


The project is funded and supported by Health Education England, The Health Foundation and Kings College London.

Project goal 

The project aims to facilitate the integration of sustainability into health professions education on QI, using the ‘SusQI’ framework which looks at value in healthcare though the lens of the "triple bottle line."


How does the SusQI project work? 

We work with selected Beacon Sites within universities, NHS Trusts and postgraduate training  centres to integrate SusQI into current QI teaching. We offer training, resources and support for our partners to help them become leaders in SusQI teaching and practice. 


What can we offer you as a SusQI Beacon Site?
















In addition to Beacon Site development, our project supports adoption of SusQI teaching across QI education programmes nationally and internationally through the creation of free open-access resources and by subsidising the  CSH Teaching Sustainable Quality Improvement online course for any educator who wants to teach SusQI. Early booking advisable as places are limited.
