Quality Improvement Fundamentals
1:30 pm – 3:45 pm
Dr. Remle Crowe, PhD | Mike Taigman, Assistant Professor

Setting up a QA/QI program at your EMS agency can feel like a daunting task. Will we review only a percentage of patient care reports and all specialty charts like cardiac arrests or traumas? Or do we have the capability to perform 100% chart review and gather all of the information from our patient care reports? The answer is neither of these. In this workshop, we’ll apply best practices for meaningful quality improvement using the Model for Improvement framework.
