  • Five Practical Strategies for Managing Successful Improvement Projects — There’s a big difference between a great idea for an improvement and a successful project. On this episode, IHI faculty offer tips to getting the work done — spending time up-front to plan the work, welcoming lots of stakeholders to get involved, and setting a deadline, to name a few. Don’t miss the downloadable tool we created to help you put the tips into action.

  • Moving Upstream to Address the Quadruple Aim — You’ve heard of the Triple Aim — improving quality of care, cost of care, and population health at the same time. But Dr. Rishi Manchanda, MD, MPH, President & Founder of HealthBegins, argues that the missing fourth dimension is the satisfaction of the health care work force. To reduce burnout, Manchanda says, health care must learn to move upstream to address the social determinants of health — the only way to truly help patients be healthier and, thus, to improve job satisfaction. Hear more from Manchanda on this episode of WIHI, which includes a lively Q&A with IHI’s Don Goldmann.
  • The Opioid Crisis: How Health Care and the Community Can Act — IHI’s innovation team scanned the health care industry to find examples of how health systems are preventing and treating opioid addiction. In this show, you’ll hear what Kaiser Permanente and the state of New Hampshire have done to reduce opioid prescribing and take a public health approach to rescuing people from overdose and helping them find treatment.

  • Joy in Work: An Antidote to Today's Burnout in Health Care — What can health systems do to fight burnout and improve joy in work? This show features health care leaders who are trying innovative strategies to remove day-to day barriers on the job, improve EHRs, and ensure that leaders at all levels are really listening.
  • The Next Wave of Patient Safety — IHI President and CEO Derek Feeley and IHI President Emeritus Don Berwick explain what’s next for patient safety, with six principles to guide the work. Among them: Shifting from a mindset of preventing adverse events to encouraging safety and inviting patients and families into the process of co-producing care.
