Are you looking to get started on a hospital-based quality improvement project? The Society of Hospital Medicine’s (SHM’s) Quality 101 resources draw from the knowledge and experience of renowned national experts in the field of quality and patient safety. Quality 101 showcases six important points critical to the success of quality improvement in the hospital.
Improvement activities are often initiated by an individual or a few individuals who recognize a gap in quality or care. Recruiting additional members who have firsthand experience with the issue or content expertise to the improvement team can help to overcome challenges, enhance interaction and stimulate the brainstorming of solutions. Adding a key leader can also support the care team by providing resources or removing barriers to solutions.
