write a 1-page report to describe the aim of the quality improvement project and actions taken to refine the improvement over the 3-week implementation period
This is a 4-week assignment with a purpose of allowing students the opportunity to actively engage in the quality improvement process. Each student will choose something he/she would like to improve about him/her-self. Projects should be individualized-getting more sleep, eat healthier, study more, etc and can be aimed at improving something identified in the self-analysis paper. Students will develop an AIM statement to identify what the proposed improvement is.
Following the process for improvement, students will implement Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycles over a consecutive 3-week period. Students will use the 4th week to (1) write a 1-page report to describe the aim of the quality improvement project and actions taken to refine the improvement over the 3-week implementation period and (2) to create a graphic to demonstrate the data (run-chart, bar graph…)
Grading for this assignment will not be based on success of the quality improvement project; it will be graded on process. The graphic should be created from excel.
