Promoting Health Care Quality- Quality Improvement Issue
To help you move forward with your Course Project, this week you identify a quality issue that you would like to address and submit a description of this issue for Instructor feedback. Your proposed issue should reflect a genuine need for improvement within your selected health care organization. Through your Course Project, you will analyze this issue and propose strategies to improve outcome(s), including the redesign of a related process.
To prepare: •Review the six quality improvement aims from the Institute of Medicine (IOM) presented in Chapter 3 of the Sadeghi, Barzi, Mikhail, and Shabot text.
•Conduct a search of the literature to help you identify a specific issue that warrants attention and action to promote quality improvement.
•Consider what you have surmised thus far through your analysis of the organization that you selected. What have you noticed that could help you identify a quality-related need for improvement? For instance:
•What has captured your attention in meetings, reports, and/or daily activities?
•Have you noticed discrepancies between activities in the organization and recommendations in the research literature, quality standards, and/or the organization’s stated policies and procedures?
•If so, what do you think could be the reason(s) for variations or gaps between what you have observed and what is recommended?
•Identify a quality improvement issue that you would like to investigate for this project.
The instructions for this assignment asks for students to identify a quality improvement issue, and provide a description of the issue they wish to pursue. This can be accomplished in 2 paragraphs.
