Three Tiers of QI Training
Tier 1 – ACT Program
Tier 3 – ATP or mini-ATP
Background: The University of Missouri is creating a continuum of learning for medical students, residents, and faculty to produce physicians committed to quality improvement (QI) and patient safety. In response to student feedback indicating that these values were variably reflected by faculty during clinical experiences, professional development opportunities in QI and patient safety were made available to faculty beginning in 2004.
Methods: Three programs were offered to selected faculty physicians from nine departments, targeting educational and clinical leaders. Faculty roles and time available for training determined the intensity of training chosen. All programs included both classroom sessions and facilitated experiential learning. Through early 2010, 26 faculty members completed a twelve hour interprofessional QI/patient safety training program involving students, residents and hospital staff. Thirteen faculty physicians completed an interprofessional performance improvement leadership development course, receiving 42 hours of instruction over six months. Ten faculty members completed intensive off-site QI training at Intermountain Health Care in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Results:After completing entry-level training, nine faculty physicians requested more intensive training. Twenty-two trained faculty members subsequently served as mentors to QI teams and 15 of these faculty members participated in the teaching of QI/patient safety to learners. Eighty-six percent of trained faculty members participated in additional quality improvement projects in the two years following their training.
Conclusions: Training of faculty physicians in QI/patient safety produced a cadre of physicians who mentor others in improvement skills and who serve as role models to learners by incorporating improvement skills into their clinical work.
