Learning Modules:
The 2001 Institute of Medicine report, Crossing the Quality Chasm, describes a gap between evidence-based best practice and what we are able to achieve on a daily basis for our patients. Clinicians who complete the HISC learning activities found in this section of the Healthcare Improvement Skills Center website will be able to address this gap in their own practices. They will be better able to:
  • Analyze current care,
  • Generate hypotheses about the link between action and results,
  • Develop ideas about how to improve,
  • Design a test of a change in practice, and
  • Plan to disseminate and sustain successful results.
Modules Included
Module 1: Describe the Issue
Module 2: Build a Team
Module 3: Define the Problem
Module 4: Choose the Target
Module 5: Test the Change
Module 6: Reconsider / Extend the Effort
