There are 3 parts to the Foundations of QI Program.
Welcome & Orientation
Four Asynchronous eLearning Modules
- Learners will encounter several healthcare scenarios that simulate how improvement effects change in the system. They will be asked to participate in different learning activities.
- Learners will explore the roles in a QI Team, tools used to identify opportunities for QI (Fishbone Diagram, 5 Whys, Process Map), how to identify an effective problem/opportunity statement and the model for improvement.
- Learners will re-visit the model for improvement and be introduced to effective aim statements, measures for improvement, and the difference between change concepts and change ideas.
- Learners will use the “PDSA” cycle to gather data and determine whether the change idea succeeded. The steps of the cycle are: plan, do , study and act.
Synchronous Digital Learning Workshop (Two Three-Hour Workshops)
Workshops will be held virtually using Zoom technology. Throughout the 2 workshops, participants will discuss the case for improvement, measurement in quality improvement, change concepts, data collection, sustaining change and more.
Note: All Modules must be completed in order.
