Five top tips to keep your project going through December and January

  • Keep testing, testing, testing, with 1 child, family, 1 doctor, 1 clinic …. no matter how small the improvement the main thing is that you are trying,
  • Think about the data you are collecting, it can simply be on paper with pen and transferred later when you have time,
  • Remember to try and make the changes part of the day job and not extra work is it improving the problem you always knew you had,
  • Take 5 or 10 mins if you can and log in and look at the EQIP resources available have a coffee or a tea while you do this put your feet up
  • Be kind to yourself during this busy festive time.
