Topics: Use of quality improvement strategies to develop and advance coalitions to improve health; the application of the Model for Improvement and its method Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycles to community health initiatives; and sustaining collaborative initiatives using QI.
Audience: Coalition leaders, individuals, and partners who want to work effectively and collaboratively towards community health goals.
Description: Effective coalitions often use quality improvement strategies to build their initiatives, implement their ideas, evaluate their success, and continuously improve their work. The Model for Improvement and its Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) methodology offers coalitions an approach to organize multi-sector efforts focused around a specific aim, to develop interventions to meet that aim, and to test those interventions through multiple rapid cycle changes. This webinar will introduce the Model for Improvement, demonstrate how to plan and implement PDSAs, share specific examples of collaborative efforts using QI tools, and demonstrate how coalitions can use QI data to jumpstart improvement efforts.
