This series of two Team-Based Learning modules represents a novel use of the method to foster interprofessional collaboration as students learn quality improvement concepts. We believe that this content area is ideal for interprofessional education, and that the Team-Based Learning method creates an instructional environment where students can have the kinds of interactions that will build team communication skills that they can use in clinical environments. These modules also build upon and deepen potential knowledge gained from the acclaimed online Institute for Healthcare Improvement Open School courses by providing students with realistic cases and allowing them to apply the concepts covered those courses. These modules are flexible and can be used with a variety of learners, and a variety of class sizes.
- To use PDSA cycles to implement and test ideas for change.
- To draw conclusions about system variation using Run and Shewart Charts.
- To use sampling and stratification to understand causes of variation.
- To articulate potential benefits of using mixed nurse/doctor teams to solve problems.
