ExpiresSeptember 22, 2023
Format TypePerformance Improvement (PI)
CME Provider: Purdue University College of Pharmacy
Description of CME Course
Lack of funding, lack of staff training and resources, lack of support from management, lack of buy-in from clinicians, lack of leadership, poor communication, resistance to change, and lack of data systems or analytics infrastructure…. the reasons we don’t do quality improvement (QI) are many, but what if there was an easier way? QI is critical to enhancing healthcare safety, effectiveness, and efficiency, and is a key component of reimbursement and maintenance of certification, but often difficult to undertake outside of a large healthcare system.
To help all clinicians and their patients reap the benefits of quality improvement programs, Purdue University and the Academy for Continued Healthcare Learning (ACHL) have collaborated with expert faculty to create an easy-to-administer, scalable digital QI program to improve adherence to guidelines for the prevention of severe hypoglycemia in patients with diabetes.
This digital QI program walks you through steps to assess how well your clinical practices align with evidence-based practice, allows you to select pre-developed goals to address your identified gaps or create your own, dynamically creates an action plan for you and your team, and offers a cache of pre-developed interventions to achieve these goals.
