This seminar will empower pediatric practices to learn quality improvement techniques and manage patients diagnosed with growth & endocrine disorders. The training and resources can assist clinicians with evaluating, educating, tracking and providing follow up to their patients.  This value-added service supports Patient Centered Medical Home recognition and will provide you with the knowledge and skills to improve processes in both clinical practice and patient outcomes.

  • Define QI and a quality culture.
  • Describe basic QI tools (Plan-Do-Study- Act (PDSA) cycles, Model for Improvement, Cause & Effect diagrams and Flow Charting).
  • Identify how each tool can be used in pediatric growth QI projects.
  • Discuss the importance of teamwork in quality improvement.
  • List common reasons why a QI project fails & how to overcome them.
