2019 Annual Quality Congress

Jump Starting Quality: Strategies to Launch a Successful QI Project

Thursday, October 3 from 12:30 to 6:00 p.m.

In collaboration with TECaN and SoNPM

Come to this hands-on workshop prepared to do real work on a newly proposed or ongoing QI project. Two learning tracks are designed for beginners and those who are more advanced. The educational design for both tracks is a “flipped classroom” and pre-work is required.

This event is presented in collaboration with Trainees and Early Career Neonatologists (TECaN) and the AAP Section on Neonatal Perinatal Medicine (SoNPM).

Foundational Track

This track is ideal for fellows who are planning their capstone project and early career neonatologists who are interested in integrating robust quality improvement methods at their center. Other professionals such as nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists, and others, many of whom are comprising newly formed interdisciplinary quality improvement teams, are also encouraged to attend and will enrich the learning environment and dialogue.

Intermediate Track

This intermediate track builds upon the foundational skills to dive deeper into understanding variation, measurement, and data. Participants will practice building and using run charts and statistical process control charts. This track is ideal for participants who have completed the VON / IHI Foundations in Improvement course and other health care professionals who have had prior QI training. Come prepared with QI data and a laptop.
