220. Recalibrating Quality Improvement: Who is in the Driver's Seat?

Date: Thursday July 16, 2015

How can our QRIS initiatives move beyond quality for a day and support meaningful, sustainable quality improvements? This session will explore the debate between compliance and innovation. Is there a way to include both in QRIS? We believe there are continuous quality improvement strategies that promote reflective teaching and not just "rule following" to achieve a high score on an assessment. This session will provide a space for open conversation and generate possibilities for innovative practices.
