Despite many ongoing attempts to improve quality and safety in today’s health care settings, projects often are not evaluated and cannot later demonstrate whether improvements were actually made. Among the quality improvement/patient safety (QI/ PS) evaluations that are conducted, a fair portion are done post-hoc, without a guiding conceptual framework or theory, and are underfunded. Further, contextual data that can help explain why some sites achieve greater success than others is often not collected or analyzed, constraining the application of interventions to other settings.
This course seeks to prepare participants to evaluate quality improvement and patient safety projects by developing their competencies in the following three areas: critiquing evaluations of projects; designing a robust evaluation of a QI/PS project; and conducting a small-scale qualitative study.
