Coaching Compacts

Coaching Compacts have been developed to assist the QI coaching network. A Compact is an informal understanding. It is a social contract not a legal contract. A compact is about what staff are expected to “give” and “get” as part of the QI coaching. A compact demonstrates the benefits for both parties.

The following QI coaching compacts have been developed and are being tested:

·        QI Coaching compact for coaching a delegate through Lothian Quality Academy    

·        QI Coaching compact for staff who are QI coaches in NHS Lothian

·        QI Compact for staff who have completed national QI training
