Learning Objectives:

1) Describe the differences between PDCA and DMAIC methodologies in constructing a QI project.
2) Discuss important team dynamics & culture necessities to drive QI at the local level.
3) Describe the essential components of the MBSAQIP standard for quality improvement & the necessary components to achieve & maintain MBSAQIP Accreditation.

Description:

During this interactive session attendees will begin with an overview of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP) requirements for annual quality improvement (QI) and how to leverage and interpret data available via the MBSAQIP Data Registry to choose meaningful initiatives. Attendees will learn from surgeon experts about QI methodologies, interventions, prioritization, and culture. During the second half of this session attendees will break into small work groups led by expert QI facilitators to simulate each step of selecting and conducting a formal QI project, culminating in a brief presentation of project results and experiences. This course is essential for novice QI leaders in a metabolic and bariatric surgery (MBS) setting and is suggested for all members of the MBS team including, but not limited to MBS Directors.
