The Quality Improvement and Patient Safety Workshop from the American College of Medical Quality

ACMQ’s Quality Improvement and Patient Safety (QI/PS) Workshop is an educational program that trains all members of your team in the fundamentals of quality improvement and patient safety. Our goal is to provide your team with a working knowledge of the theories, practices and tools used by the experts in the QI/PS. The workshop will include interactive sessions focusing on the tools, practices, and theories of leadership and strategy necessary for implementing successful quality improvement programs at your institution.

This, eight-hour workshop (delivered in one day or over two days) is designed for groups of no more than 30, is facilitated by expert faculty from the American College of Medical Quality, along with a member of your institution’s leadership. This inclusive representation allows customization to your organization’s goals and direction.

The College also offers the workshop as a pre-conference workshop at our annual conferences.

Costs and Associated Expenses for ACMQ Quality Improvement Workshop

ACMQ, in partnership with each host organization, will provide educational content and primary course faculty for an Introduction to Quality Improvement and Patient Safety Workshop that features two established and experienced faculty members from ACMQ and a quality leader from the host organization.

In an effort to create the ‘right fit’ workshop for each organization ACMQ develops a ‘tailored’ proposal with relevant fees, learning objectives and course faculty, specific to each relationship. The College is able to draw on a unique cadre of nationally recognized leaders and educators in Medical Quality at a modest investment of $7,500* and up, depending on the educational goals and requirements of each organization.
