Continuous Quality Improvement: Strategies & Techniques to Measure Change - Recorded during the 2020 Virtual National Conference.
Presented by: Karen Riley, MBA, BSN and Cheryl Esposito, MSN, RN, CCHP-RN
A CQI program provides a systematic way for sites to review, monitor, and implement change. Conducting frequent process and outcome audits/studies provides staff and site leadership with a clear picture of specific areas that need improvement. The Plan, Do, Check, Act model (PDCA) enables site leadership to complete an audit/study, review the results, conduct a root cause analysis to determine the reason(s), identify what contributed to the ‘noncompliance,’ and then develop a corrective action plan. A successful corrective action plan is the site’s guide for success. Incorporating an educational program tailored to the needs of the site’s audit results can provide staff with the tools and information needed to address knowledge-related deficits and ultimately aid in improving patient outcomes. 2.5 CE Credits
