Proving and Improving Quality
January 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PST
Presented By: Richard Roberts, MD, JD
This presentation will discuss the history, evidence, and limitations of the quality movement in health care. The inadequacies of current methods will be highlighted and a new scientific paradigm will be offered. The principal message is that patient values and preferences, and local circumstances, need to be incorporated when developing, implementing, and measuring quality improvement initiatives.
- Describe the history, methods, and limitations of quality improvement initiatives.
- Evaluate the impact of at least one major population-based quality program.
- Develop sufficient understanding of basic quality principles to use them in practice.
