Quality improvement (QI) in health care involves changes that result in better clinical and process outcomes. Educational institutions and accreditation bodies are requiring undergraduate and postgraduate educational programmes to teach QI among students, although their baseline knowledge and experience vary tremendously. This session will provide an overview of the major steps to developing a curriculum to teach QI in the health care setting. The session will cover competencies and learning objectives for QI and how they can be tied to medical education. The session will outline some of the curricular methods that can be used, including information on how to design a QI curriculum to meet the needs of local students at a fundamental, intermediate and advanced level, as well as how to implement it and evaluate both the students and the curriculum itself. The session will share advice drawn from the speaker’s experience in developing and delivering a national QI curriculum for programmes in Canada, including suggestions for further reading and additional resources.
