Evidence-based Practice for Improving Quality (EPIQ) Workshop

October 24, 2022

The EPIQ workshop uses a hands-on approach that enables teams to successfully implement quality improvement together. Each workshop incorporates a series of ten steps that build a team’s understanding of quality improvement using evidence-based tools and realistic improvement opportunities. The workshop’s collaborative approach parallels the team-based nature of healthcare, giving groups the language, skills, and tools needed to carry out their first improvement project.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this program, participants will be equipped to:

  • work together as teams
  • use quality improvement (QI) tools
  • plan QI activities in their facilities and communities
  • explain the EPIQ 10 steps and tools to new learners (if taking a train-the-trainer workshop)

In each 4-6 hour workshop you will learn:

  • why improvement science is valuable in health care and everyday life
  • gain expertise on the QI process and understand how to implement it in your context
  • establish a stronger understanding of your opportunities for change
  • break down implementation into achievable steps
  • get a handle on the logistics: plans, team creation, measurement, and more
