Learn to Manage Quality Improvement Projects with Implementation Science
Posted on February 27, 2020
The MHA Keystone Center has extended to March 11 the deadline for registering for the Implementation Science: Healthcare Performance Improvement Certification Course, offered in conjunction with Vlasic & Roth. Participants will complete online coursework prior to an in-person boot camp event that is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 25 at the James B. Henry Center for Executive Development, Lansing.
Implementation science is the study of transforming evidence-based ideas into everyday practice to improve healthcare outcomes. This involves assessing barriers to change, understanding the target group and setting, and selecting effective strategies and measures to change behavior.
Healthcare organizations may have many quality improvement projects underway, but few have been successful in effectively changing the way they operate. The main reason for failure is the lack of a systemic approach to implementation. Organizations that can effectively implement evidence-based practices will lead the charge to attain the Quadruple Aim — improving the patient experience and population health, decreasing the cost of care, and improving well-being and resilience among care teams.
The Implementation Science: Healthcare Performance Improvement Certification Course will combine virtual training, the in-person boot camp and one-to-one coaching. The online coursework can be completed in approximately eight to 10 hours and must be done before the boot camp event. The online content will help lay the knowledge foundation for the in-person event. The boot camp will allow subject matter experts and participants to take a deep dive into common implementation barriers. Upon successful completion of the course and an online exam, participants will earn certification as an Implementation Influencer.
Register for the course by March 11. Members with questions about this offering may contact the MHA Keystone Center.
