Continuous Quality Improvement

Nau mai, hoki mai koutou! The College鈥檚 Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) module allows practices to demonstrate their work towards improving health outcomes. The module, which is completed in six steps, asks practices to identify an area of improvement in their work and apply a structured quality improvement model (such as a plan-study-do-act [PDSA] cycle) to track progress.

Although incorporating equity into the CQI project is important, it is not the focus. Projects also don鈥檛 need to be successful to make for great examples because learning and recording lessons for future work is also great practice.
