New e-Learning Modules on Diabetes Quality Improvement
Are you a health care provider working with people living with diabetes? The BBDC’s Quality Improvement and Safety Committee (QUEST) has made three new e-learning modules available to help you improve your knowledge of quality improvement (QI).
Designed by experts in the science of quality improvement, learners will work through a hypothetical QI initiative that aims to improve diabetes foot screening. Users will learn the steps and methodology needed to get a project started and ensure a high likelihood of success.
This activity is an Accredited Self-Assessment Program (Section 3) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of The Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Canada and approved by the Canadian Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism.
The new e-learning modules, Diabetes Quality Improvement Primer, are available here.
