Applying QI Frameworks to Improve Well-Being

Russ Migita, MD and Nick Meo, MD – from the UW Medicine Center for Scholarship in Patient Care Quality and Safety – will facilitate a series of rapid-fire presentations on QI tools, followed by tabletop exercises and report-outs. The goals are to identify local root causes of physician burnout by creating a driver diagram; develop a set of measures to guide future improvement work; plan an intervention; and use an implementation toolkit to assist with local efforts to address burnout.
