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, and
  • To support the Innovations in Planned Care work that is currently underway.
