GNYHA Hosts First Quality Fundamentals Plus: Beyond the Basics

March 6, 2023

The first session of GNYHA’s Quality Fundamentals Plus: Beyond the Basics (QF Plus) course was held last week. Sixty-nine participants from 20 institutions attended. QF Plus builds on the success of GNYHA’s Quality Fundamentals: Basics course to provide a deeper dive into quality improvement (QI) fundamentals. The Quality Fundamentals series is designed to build QI capacity at member hospitals, particularly among frontline staff. QF Plus, which is for staff who have completed Quality Fundamentals: Basics, helps hospitals ensure that gains from QI projects are sustained and are the focus of sustainability strategies. QF Plus attendees said the course “[helps] to teach us how best to look at data” and “included a lot of added value to the previous course.”
