Engaging Students in Quality Improvement
This “back-to-school”-themed session is presented by student leaders from IHI Open School chapters at UBC, UBC Okanagan (UBCO) and the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC). They share how post-secondary students can develop and practice their quality improvement skills while in school, and highlight resources and opportunities for hands-on experience.
Through these students’ own experience with the IHI Open School, this presentation covers how students can realize their full potential as change agents and quality improvement leaders. This presentation is also valuable for those who work with or supervise students, particularly in the realms of health care and quality improvement.
The Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) Open School: University of British Columbia (UBC) Chapter is an interdisciplinary community of students and professionals striving for a more efficient, effective and safe health care system that provides the best possible care for all patients.
