This is an online course made up of 16 progressive modules. This course uses curricula developed by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI). The modules provide students with background information and strategies for how to incorporate quality improvement techniques and improve patient safety. Students will complete the 16 required modules and associated quizzes, requiring a passing grade on each to obtain the IHI Basic Certificate. The modules are self-contained; they include readings, videos, interactive discussions, and case applications. Each module takes up to 2 hours to complete.
By the end of this course, students should know or be able to identify common principles and techniques of quality improvement (QI) and patient safety, including the model for improvement, the PDSA (plan-do-study-act) cycle, root cause analysis, QI research, human factors engineering and process mapping.
