Incorporating Continuous Quality Improvement Methods (CQI) into the Annual Program and Institution Evaluation Process: Ascension Providence Rochester/Wayne State University
Tsveti Markova, MD, Associate Dean, Graduate Medical Education
R. Brent Stansfield, PhD, Director of Education, Graduate Medical Education
This interactive session provides a blueprint for applying continuous quality improvement (CQI) methods to your program evaluation. The Wayne State University GME Office has adopted these methods for its Annual Program (APE) and Institutional Evaluations (AIR) (Stansfield & Markova, in press) and will share evidence of its impact and wisdom acquired from the process. The presentation will detail Specific-Measurable-Accountable-Realistic-Timely (SMART) Action Items, Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycles, and briefly describe a novel approach to generating actionable Dashboards from quantitative and qualitative information. Attendees will gain an understanding of how to incorporate SMART Action Items, PDSA Cycles, and structured Dashboards to their APE and AIR processes, and draft a set of individualized Action Items for application to their own programs and institutions.
