Integrating Quality Improvement into the Work-life of VA MOVE! Program Coordinators: LEAP Program First-year Results


by Laura Damschroder, MPH
Seminar date: 3/1/2018

Description: Quality improvement (QI) activities that are integrated into everyday work-life is a building-block skill for organizations to transform into learning health systems. It is also an approach by which programs can be incrementally improved to more closely align with evidence-based innovations. However, learning and applying quality improvement skills is challenging for clinicians who work within a busy clinical environment. The Learn. Engage. Act. Process. (LEAP) Program is a team-level intervention, designed to empower frontline staff to implement and enhance evidence-based programs by building QI skills within the context of significant constraints on time and resources. The aim of this study was to evaluate process outcomes from a large-scale, stepped-wedge, randomized control trial of LEAP. First-year results will be presented. Intended audience: Anyone interested in approaches to build capability and capacity for QI among frontline clinicians and staff including researchers, managers, and practitioners.
