QI online tool training

Tue, 03/28/2017 - 09:39 -- Thomas6

I'm looking for short, online video(s) on QI tools - could be all in one video or separate video's for each tool.  Does anyone have a good resource?

Hi Thomas,

We use videos produced by the Center for Public Health Practice at The Ohio State University. 

They have two different sets of modules:

CQI for Public Health: The Fundamentals

Module 1: Introduction and Principles of CQI
Module 2: Problem-Solving PDSA
Module 3: CQI Project Selection and Teams

CQI for Public Health: Tool Time

Module 4: Analysis Tools
Module 5: Data Tools
Module 6: Decision Making Tools
Module 7: Planning Tools
Module 8: QI Storyboards

You can follow a link to their learning management system here (its free):

We have all new staff take The Fundamentals and then use the Tool Time set of modules for QI Council members. Sounds like you'll probably want to look at the Tool Time set of modules but The Fundamentals also has good introductory information.

One nice thing about these modules is you can stop at any point and resume right where you were (one disclaimer I'll give though is sometimes the interactive slides freeze/don't load. If you refresh your browser you can go right back to that place and they seem to work each time I've had to do so).

Hi Thomas, I've referred a number of people to the training that Brandon referenced. In addition, check out this other PHQIX community forum thread that contains additional online training resources: https://www.phqix.org/content/looking-engaging-online-introductory-qi-training-line-staff. It would be great to hear from others as well! Grace
