In the Anderson Center, we are developing a system of improvement science education that supports the transformation of the organization and catalyzes the cultural shift necessary to be a leader in improving child health. Our approach is to provide educational offerings across multiple levels of content and skill, providing faculty and staff the ability to incorporate improvement into their strategic priorities and daily work, allowing them to fulfill their roles.
Improvement science is incorporated into our performance management system, which requires a competency around continuous improvement. Staff members are required to build improvement capability in themselves and others by improving processes and services with an emphasis on measurable results, including use of prediction and testing changes, as a vehicle for learning and improvement.
Below you will find a description of our improvement science offerings. All leaders in the healthcare industry are eligible to apply for the Intermediate Improvement Science Series and Advanced Improvement Methods. Only Cincinnati Children’s faculty and staff may apply for the Basic Online Modules and Rapid Cycle Improvement Collaborative.
