Online QIT became a necessity imposed by the pandemic. Given the level of rapid change to QIT delivery since the COVID-19 crisis began, we still do not fully understand how these changes have impacted healthcare professionals receiving online QIT and implementing QI projects. In the road to recovery from the pandemic and beyond, QI trainers are likely to embed a hybrid approach to QIT. Therefore, we need to better understand what the experiences are of online QI learning and training. By understanding the experience of those receiving and delivering online QIT, we can map the key lessons learned and use these to guide training for future healthcare educators and learners. This would also provide further insight on what is needed to ensure that virtual QI classroom experiences are successful and QI project implementation effective even when QIT is delivered online.
