The use of quality improvement (QI) has led to many advancements in the delivery of health care. But the demand for improvement is increasing and many QI initiatives fail or are not sustainable. To achieve real improvement, the change associated with QI needs to be sustainably adopted into practice. Starting August 17, 2017, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) offers the IHI Virtual Expedition: Highly Adoptable Improvement. Participants of this virtual team-based training will reflect on the current demands for improvement and learn strategies to design more adoptable and sustainable quality improvement initiatives and how to apply these new skills within their own organizations.
What You'll Learn
At the end of this IHI Virtual Expedition, participants will be able to:
- Analyze why some QI strategies lead to more sustained improvement
- Utilize tools to develop more sustainably adoptable improvement strategies
- Use exercises learned in these sessions to engage others in their organization in initiatives to create highly adoptable and sustainable improvement
IHI is approved for a maximum of 6.5 continuing education credits for physicians and pharmacists.
