Quality Improvement (QI) Project
(150 points)
Purpose
The purpose of the QI project is to teach students how to implement and evaluate a quality improvement project using the Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycle.
Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this project, the student will learn how to (1) develop an aim statement, (2) implement change using the model for improvement (PDSA cycles), (3) collect data to measure change/improvement, and (4) report data using charts or graphs.
Criteria
Each student will choose something about themselves that they would like to improve.
The student conducts the improvement plan for three Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycles. One cycle per week for 3 weeks.
Record data to measure the change
At the conclusion of the project, submit a 1-page report describing the quality improvement project including a (1) aim statement, (2) measure used, (3) describe changes made after each PDSA cycle, (4) create a graph or chart to illustrate the change over time (see Grading Criteria)
Grading will not be based on the success of the quality improvement project; will be graded on the process.
