Pro­gramme: A course promis­ing ‘qual­ity im­prove­ment the­ory and lead­er­ship’

- Health Care · Intermountain Health Care

The In­ter­moun­tain Health­care ad­vanced train­ing pro­gramme is a 20-day course aimed at ex­ec­u­tives, qual­ity im­prove­ment lead­ers and clin­i­cians and is di­vided into four ses­sions.

The pur­pose is to give par­tic­i­pants the un­der­stand­ing to con­duct clin­i­cal prac­tice and im­prove­ment projects, use meth­ods to man­age non-clin­i­cal pro­cesses, im­ple­ment im­prove­ment pro­grammes and con­duct in­ter­nal train­ing.

It also gives par­tic­i­pants the chance to join an in­ter­na­tional frame­work for in­for­ma­tion shar­ing.

As part of the course, each par­tic­i­pant must se­lect, com­plete and re­port on a par­tic­u­lar im­prove­ment pro­ject and con­sul­ta­tions with an an­a­lyst are pro­vided at each ses­sion.

The first ses­sion fo­cuses on “qual­ity im­prove­ment the­ory and lead­er­ship,” while the sec­ond is about “qual­ity plan­ning tools and clin­i­cal in­te­gra­tion,” “lean pro­duc­tion” and “lead­er­ship of team be­hav­iours.”

The third ses­sion is about health­care pol­icy and sys­tems and the last gives an op­por­tu­nity for pre­sen­ta­tions.
