Quality Improvement Education (QIE)
SHC has adapted the rapid cycle improvement or PDSA (Plan-Do_Study-Act) approach to quality improvement (QI) by enhancing its focus on the patient and community, engaging the whole clinical team, and celebrating the clinicians who work so hard to care for their patients. More importantly, we provide examples of QI project that have been implemented and shown to promote quality and equity.
SHC’s DRIVE approach adheres to the following principles:
Patient-centered, engaging patients and community leaders in program and treatment planning as well as educational activities;
Team-based, with all members of the practice team included to create efficiencies in care, avoid burn-out, and tap into the strong motivation held by all to take good care of patients;
Local champion-driven, from the clinic and community promoting sustainable improvement;
