SQUIRE Guidance is internationally recognised as the standard to work towards:

Standards for reporting quality improvement have been developed so as to maximise the value to the improver but also the reader who may want to adapt an approach or even copy it.

Sharing and borrowing from others is a key ingredient - why reinvent the wheel but you may need to adjust the wheel size and fitting so it matches your team/ patients requirements!

Posters from Bristol Patient Safety Conference:

Bristol Patient Safety Conference commenced in 2003 as a means of sharing and learning about quality improvement work across the South West and more widely. It is supported by Health Innovation West of England and is a well-recognised forum for trainees to present and share their QI work. The value for trainees and those supervising to be able to see previous project undertaken in the same area and or learn from solutions that can be adapted to improve their own systems problems cannot be underestimated. Quality Improvement publication requires the authors to share their context, their analysis of the current situation, their ideas and what and what they did to test them out. The routine collection of date to show progress and changes to process measures and eventually outcomes for patients is a consistent approach to thinking, acting, sharing and learning that is a universal approach for Quality Improvement work internationally.
