IHI's Improvement Science in Action is a four-month journey into improvement science designed for people actively involved in facilitating and managing health care improvement projects.
A unique hands-on approach provides a firm grounding in the concepts, tools, and methods you will need to effectively and efficiently drive your organization’s improvement initiatives. Whether you are new to quality improvement or looking to expand upon your experience and skills, this program will deepen your understanding of improvement science and advance your capabilities as a leader in this critical discipline.
This program begins with an orientation and overview WebEx session where the design and content of the program are reviewed. The highlight of the program is a three-day face-to-face meeting, where you will learn how to apply the principles, tools, and methods of improvement science. During the three-day workshop, you will become better equipped to focus on specific project aims and measures as well as develop ideas for improving your results.
After the face-to-face meeting, you will participate in monthly, web-based coaching sessions that provide opportunities to extend your learning and gain feedback from faculty and colleagues as you put your new skills to work.
