This masterclass session provides participants with a review of run charts and control charts (i.e., statistical process control) followed by a discussion on more advanced SPC topics. Through the use of interactive exercises and illustrative examples, attendees will review how to differentiate between various types of control charts and analyze time-series data represented by run charts and control charts. The session will also introduce more advanced concepts in SPC including subgrouping, approaches to common cause and special cause variation, among others. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to construct control charts using QI Macros through several instructor led examples. These analytic skills will prepare participants to evaluate their QI interventions and demonstrate their impact on clinical processes and outcomes.



  • Review run charts and control charts
  • Select an appropriate control chart based on the type of data being collected
  • Interpret run and control charts to determine whether common or special cause variation exists
