Together with your team you have the opportunity to slow disease progression, improve teamwork and receive Maintenance of Certification Part IV credit for practice improvement. 

This module will walk you through the quality improvement process in 3 phases. 
Assess, Improve and Reflect

Assess:  This phase will start with learning about Quality Improvement.  Collecting baseline data will help you measure your current performance.  Through this analysis, your team will choose a process to improve and create an aim statement to drive the improvement process.  Your team will identify specific changes for improvement through a process and cause analysis.  Using information from this analysis will guide the identification of specific change(s) or interventions you can test that will result in practice improvement. 

Improve: Continue on your quality improvement journey by putting your improvement strategy into action as you work through Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycles.  Collecting data after each cycle to compare baseline and results from your improvement cycles will determine if the interventions were successful.

Reflect: Upon completion of two PDSA cycles, your team will reflect on changes implemented so you can sustain and spread your improvement efforts.

Earn Points for your board for meeting the MOC Part IV requirements for Performance in Practice. 

You and your team will receive CME/CE credit as well as the satisfaction of knowing that you have improved care for your patients.
