Chronic Care Initiative Readiness Curriculum Web-based Call Series
The Readiness Curriculum is a monthly web-based call series that includes
training on improvement and care models, project management, and leadership for
improvement. This call series is a resource for all health care organizations
across the Indian health system.
Three hundred persons representing the Indian health system attended the
IHI National Forum in December 2007. This experience created an increased demand
and expectation for further improvement opportunities. Sites asked to be involved
in improvement discussions and they requested further learning about improvement
methodologies and topics. Rather than risking “wasted will”, the
Chronic Care Initiative planning group developed a “Readiness Curriculum”.
This curriculum includes learning activities designed to reach all Tribal, Federal,
and Urban sites that are willing and eager to learn more about the improvement
methods used to test and implement change ideas from the Care Model as well as
improvement methodologies in general.
The goals of the Readiness Curriculum Web-based Call Series include:
- To address stimulating topics of interest that relate to improving planned
care for all,
- To generate useful tools and references for attendees to learn more about
improvement methodologies and how to use them to transform their organizations,
- To support the Innovations in Planned Care work that is currently underway.
