CQUIPS+ Qualitative Research Methods in QI Masterclass
A qualitative research approach can be useful at various stages of a quality improvement project – from developing a deeper and more comprehensive understanding of your problem, to designing an intervention that addresses the factors influencing relevant practices, to evaluating both the intended and unintended impacts of your improvement efforts. However, the opportunities for a qualitative research approach to optimize a QI project are often missed. In this masterclass, we will cover the foundations of using qualitative approaches in QI and work with participants to think about how a qualitative research approach could complement the QI methodology within their individual projects.
Note: Students should have a foundation of QI knowledge and are encouraged to submit a QI project proposal/idea/work in progress at least two weeks prior to the session.
