Many organizations intend to provide quality care to their patients by implementing initiatives proven or presumed to be effective. While all of these initiatives have the end goal of providing care that is safe, efficient, quality, and cost effective, there are several strategies for achieving success. Often confusion exists among the processes used to improve quality care and patient outcomes. This webinar examines the research, quality improvement and evidence-based practice processes in clinical practice. Your will learn the differences, benefits, drawbacks, and applications of each process. This knowledge is extremely important for anyone planning to implement new measures to achieve quality care.
