Certification Course to Assess Barriers, Change Behavior

Posted on July 11, 2019

Implementation Science Healthcare Performance Improvement CertificationThe MHA Keystone Center, in conjunction with Northville-based Vlasic & Roth, is hosting a multifaceted, innovative certification training program on implementation science. The importance of obtaining this certification is outlined in a short video.

Implementation science transforms evidence-based ideas into actionable change organizationwide, such as assessing barriers and selecting effective strategies to change behavior and improve healthcare outcomes.

The Implementation Science: Healthcare Performance Improvement Certification Course will offer an in-depth, online training component that will help identify where hospitals are in their quality improvement work. Registration for the course must be completed by Sept. 8. Information for completing the online component will be sent to participants following registration. The online portion can be completed in roughly eight to 10 hours and will help lay the foundation for the in-person boot camp event that will take place Oct. 15 at the James B. Henry Center for Executive Development, Lansing.

The in-person boot camp event will help participants set goals, learn how to execute sustainable implementation plans and evidence-based practices, and integrate tools into everyday practice.

Following the Oct. 15 event, an online exam will be administered on the main concepts learned throughout the course. Upon successful completion of the course and test, participants will earn a certification in implementation science.

Members with questions about this multipart training program should contact the MHA Keystone Center.
