Join Quality Improvement Series for Title V Staff
AMCHP, in partnership with Population Health Improvement Partners , is hosting a Quality Improvement eLearning Series for Title V staff to build capacity to apply QI tools and concepts to their work. This interactive, virtual series of trainings with expert QI coaches from Improvement Partners runs from March to July. Topics include assessing current systems, identifying and prioritizing changes, testing changes and sustaining change. Participants do not have to commit to attend every session to take part in these trainings.
The first live discussion, Assessing the Current System, will take place March 16 at 2 p.m. ET. This session will provide an opportunity to discuss how to use the Model for Improvement to identify an aim statement and measures; understand the importance of conducting observations of a process/system in real time; and select a tool to visually display observations of the process/system to identify opportunities for improvement. Register here to join us!
