Watch a brief interview with IHI faculty member, Dr. David Munch, on why it's so important to build improvement capability throughout an organization.
In successful health care systems, managers play a vital role in meeting their organizations’ key strategic and improvement goals.
As the bridge between senior leadership and the front lines, it is their job to turn high-level objectives into action at the department or unit level. Far too often, managers are not equipped or supported with the right skills, resources, or guidance to achieve their aims.
Ask yourself these questions:
- Do your managers have sharp clinical abilities or extensive patient care experience, but lack leadership know-how or health care quality improvement (QI) knowledge?
- Does your organization have some staff members with QI experience, but not enough to lead the many improvement efforts underway?
- Do your budget constraints make it seem impossible to provide leadership training to all the people who need it?
If the answer to any of the above is yes, this five-month, in-depth virtual program, starting
January 23, 2018 will help set managers (and their teams) up for success.
Leading Quality Improvement: Essentials for Managers, uses innovative teaching methods to enhance engagement and deepen understanding of QI. Participants will learn how to focus their staff’s efforts and improve processes to more effectively achieve organizational strategic goals.
Throughout this virtual program experts with a wealth of experience in improvement science, measurement, modeling, coaching, innovation, and making the business case for improvement will facilitate discussion about the key takeaways from the cases while teaching the skills managers need to excel in their jobs.
This IHI Virtual Program has been approved for 12 continuing education credits for nurses, pharmacists, and physicians.
