The Center offers QI Bootcamps, four-hour training sessions specifically for frontline providers, including nurses, physician assistants, social workers, pharmacists, project managers, psychiatrists, and other allied health providers. These in-person workshops teach participants to apply common techniques in QI, through interactive teaching and facilitated group exercises. The curriculum covers AIM statements, process mapping, driver diagrams, PDSA cycles, run charts, and more. These bootcamps deliver a high-yield introduction to QI skills, perfect for the busy individual who may not have time to complete the Certificate Program in Patient Safety and Quality or a Master of Health Administration.
We offer these QI Bootcamps to small teams and entire clinical units both within and outside the UW Medicine system. We have done series of bootcamps for the UW Chief Medical Office and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, among other groups.
