💻 Delivered Virtually

Shawn Mondoux

By the end of this session participants will be able to:

  • Define quality improvement (QI) scholarship.

  • Understand the minimum requirements for creating scholarship in QI.

The prevailing forces in clinical and academic medicine are driving the inclusion and development of the science of Quality Improvement (QI): clinicians and faculty are being hired for it, journals are creating sections to publish it, promotion processes are creating rubrics for it and we are talking about it. Yet a lack of clarity persists around defining and conducting QI scholarship. In this talk, I explore QI scholarship and provide a pathway for its completion. With a little bit of rigour, anybody can create scholarship in QI.
