QI Collaborative

The PCQN Quality Improvement Collaborative is looking at ways to measure the quality of palliative care. We use the PCQN database to examine baseline comparable data between the different sites participating in the network.

Using a QI Framework to improve care:
1. Set the vision for improvement
2. Understand the problem(s)
3. Identify areas for improvement
4. Prioritize small tests of change
5. Devise a measurement strategy
6. Monitor your progress
7. Assess & adjust
8. Sustain the change

We work as a team over multiple sites to discuss best practices to reach our quality goal. Our ongoing monthly conference calls include educational seminars and active mentorship.
