Hey all - During today's (5/27/2015) PHQIX webinar w/ Grace Gorenflo, we discussed ways for users to adapt PHQIX tools and resources for individual QI efforts. I presented and described 3 examples. Then I then asked the 45+ participants to brainstorm other ideas. Below i've listed my examples as well as the ideas generated during the call. What can you add to the list? Share your ideas by adding a comment to this thread.
1. PHQIX is a “gateway” to the PHQI body of knowledge - Resources available via PHQIX can support the efforts of users to: build QI culture, develop QI plans, carry out QI projects, develop training materials for staff and to continue your professional development.
2. PHQIX is a resource to develop agency QI leaders - Make sure PHQIX is institutionalized in your agency as a resource for emerging QI leaders.
3. PHQIX provides unique access to vetted, practice-based examples - Use creativity to enhance your QI efforts by studying these practice-based examples.
Ideas brainstormed during the call:
Torney Smith: PHQIX provides great examples for us to emulate as we try to address topics found on PHQIX
Jordan-Lindsay Morris: For orientation purposes
Leann Orr: Looking forward to accessing the Community Forum for ideas on how to make QI fun!
Kathie Dyer: Our new QI Plan will require our QI Council to receive 1/4ly inservices related to QI. As the QI Consultant I will be using these resources for these inservices.
Orlanda Bratlien: Our group used the PDSA cycle in implementing a Process Improvement Book Club during lunch time brown bag sessions. We can provide the members with the PHQIX website
Torney Smith: We have used other agency's Kaisen examples to build support for similar activities in our agency.
Leann Orr: Accessing webinars and other trainings for development and training of a QI team
Kristen Sanders: Having examples of QI projects and going through as a walk through/step by step
Torney Smith: Building staff support for efforts in QI have been bolstered by tools like the memory jogger and certainly using samples from other agency's successes
Torney Smith: When working on a specific topic and using a PHQIX example it would be helpful to contact the people doing that example
Torney Smith: Perhaps we could be encouraged to leave our contact info when submitting an example
