Incorporating assessment into QI curriculum masterclass
Are you an educator or program director responsible for teaching others about quality improvement (QI)?
Are you looking for ways to determine whether your learners have achieved the desired learning outcomes after completing your curriculum?
Do you want to help your learners execute QI projects that achieve the best possible clinical outcomes?
This masterclass, taught by two international leaders in QI education, will introduce participants to the range of published QI assessment tools available to educators and guide them in choosing the most appropriate tools for their QI curriculum. Participants will have the opportunity to practice using various QI assessment tools in order to select the most useful and relevant ones for their training program and determine how best to incorporate them into their QI curriculum. By the end of the masterclass, participants will create an assessment plan that will allow their QI curriculum to improve learner and/or project outcomes.
