​​Join the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) WIHI talk show on Thursday June 5, to hear Dr. Chris Hayes, Medical Officer, Canadian Patient Safety Institute and Harkness Fellow in Health Care Policy and Practice (IHI) presenting on Making the Work of Q.I. Less Draining and More Sustaining. The one-hour broadcast takes place from 2:00 to 3:00 pm (EST).

Making the Work of Q.I. Less Draining and More Sustaining will take a fresh look at disenchantment and ways to reduce overburdening staff and physicians with change.  Dr. Hayes will discuss the “maximally adoptable improvement” model and guide he has developed. This prototype lays out a set of criteria that should be met before improvement work begins, if the initiative is to succeed. The criteria includes early staff engagement in the planning, a clear sense of the workload required, available resources, and ensuring that everyone sees the value in what they’ll be asked to do.

Dr. Hayes will be joined by Uma Kotagal and Julie Holt from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) who have become mindful of the burden constant changes placed on staff and healthcare providers and are known for their outstanding work on quality improvement and patient safety.  The broadcast is hosted by Madge Kaplan of IHI.

Mark your calendars and tune-in on June 5th for this exciting discussion and opportunity to share your ideas and solutions.
