We design tools that support today's quality improvement leaders.
Founded in 2016, the Institute for Perinatal Quality Improvement works to expand the use of quality improvement to eliminate preventable perinatal morbidity and mortality and ensure equitable outcomes. We rely on multi-stakeholder advisory boards and experts to create educational content and programs.
New: Online Education Modules
PQI subscribers told us they were interested in learning how to implement intermittent auscultation (IA) safely at their hospital… and we listened. On January 22, 2020, we launched the first PQI Online Education Module, a simulation-based education module that can be purchased in our store.
Implementing PQI Conference: June 3, 2020
Join us at the beautiful Shelby Park Conservancy in Memphis, Tennessee, for our next hands-on, interactive learning event for perinatal professionals. We teach you how to use improvement science methods to support your efforts to provide high quality, safe care to moms and babies.
Using QI to Eliminate Perinatal Disparities
A quality improvement (QI) approach has been successfully used to improve clinical outcomes, suggesting that QI can be a powerful tool to eliminating disparities.
We used the Ishikawa diagram method and the Socio-Ecological Model to develop the Socio-Ecological Perinatal Disparities Ishikawa Diagram.
