Data-Driven Improvement

OCTOBER 24  | 0900 – 1630 | $100+GST | PRINCE GEORGE, BC

Measurement and the effective use of data are cornerstones of any improvement effort, from incremental changes to radical transformations, but it can be difficult to know where to begin. That’s why we’ve planned a one-day, in-person workshop on data-driven improvement. The workshop will explore how data can be used to drive the improvements we wish to see – setting up measurement systems that work, analyzing data to uncover new insights and monitoring improvements over time. Not a technical person? Don’t worry: this workshop isn’t about crunching numbers in Excel or using statistical software. Instead, we’ll take a practical, hands-on approach to exploring how data can be used to answer questions, understand problems, and drive meaningful change. By the end of this workshop, you’ll be able to:
  • Describe the different purposes of measurement
  • Explain how measurement supports improvement efforts
  • Define key measures and strategies to collect data
  • Examine variation to gain a deeper understanding of a system
  • Use visual displays to analyze data and monitor improvement over time
  • Interpret data to generate new insights to guide improvement efforts

Eligibility

  • Patient partners in Prince George
  • Previously attended a PVN orientation session and completed the Volunteer Agreement.

Background

Please click here for more information on the "Data-Driven Improvement" workshop. The Council regularly offers workshops, seminars and mini-courses on different topics related to improving patient safety and quality of care in BC. These learning workshops are open to all who are interested in broadening their learning around quality of care. We are excited to be able to sponsor PVN patient partners to attend these workshops at no cost. This particular workshop is being offered at our Downtown Vancouver office, and will be led by Andrew Wray, Director of Learning and Strategic Initiatives with the BC Patient Safety & Quality Council. These workshops are held in various locations around the province, so we will be offering similar opportunities for patient partners to attend workshops in other regions.

Seeking the patient perspective doesn’t have to be complicated; it simply entails a commitment to ask and listen. Patient advisors not only bring a valuable perspective but also share original ideas and unique skills. Including the patient and family perspective changes the conversation and aligns the team’s focus towards common goals.
