At Cincinnati Children’s, the James M. Anderson Center for Health Systems Excellence is transforming the delivery of care through improvement science. Our Intermediate Improvement Science Series (I2S2) is an accredited course that supports the transformation of health systems and catalyzes the cultural shift necessary to be a leader in improving child health.
We welcome leaders from other healthcare systems outside of Cincinnati Children’s to apply for the program.
I2S2 helps build a broader and deeper network of improvement leaders, brings about continued cultural transformation and develops skill and experience through the Model for Improvement as based on Deming’s “System of Profound Knowledge.” Participants work on a real project in their system to drive immediate improvements in care as they build their skills.
Physicians, nurses, allied health and nonclinical leaders at the director level or above who want to make an immediate impact in their health system.
*June 23 includes a graduation celebration
All workshops are held at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.
Webinars require a high-speed internet connection and telephone for audio.
Expert faculty members lead the course in understanding variation, appreciation of the system, theory of knowledge / action-learning and psychology / change management. Instructional methodologies include lectures, large- and small-group discussion, application exercises, project presentations, and interactive learning in the spirit of “all teach, all learn.” Class size is limited to 28 participants with a balance of professional roles to maximize the learning experience.
Each student will have one hour per month of telephone access to a quality improvement coach. The role of the coach is to provide technical feedback to the student regarding the quality methods and tools used during the student’s improvement project. Coaches may also provide additional quality improvement and change management instruction to assist the student in determining his or her project goals and planning a testing approach. Coaching sessions are available by appointment only. The coach is not a member of the student’s project team and is not responsible for project outcomes.
