The ultimate goal of this Initiative is to improve patient care, specifically by
improving skills and competencies, and changing practice performance of the
individual health-system pharmacist in appropriate management of HAIs. Through
collaboration with SIDP, assessment has been integrated in every step of this Initiative.
- Baseline practice of the individual learners and the unique challenges they face will be assessed through
pre-activity surveys. Faculty will attempt to address these specific challenges during the
- Formative assessment techniques will be utilized during the
live activity to adjust teaching approach and
develop “Quality Improvement: Tool Time”.
- Post-Activity Surveys will be used to assess how the individual learner has altered his/her practice to
appropriately manage HAIs and the challenges and barriers they continue to face.
As an active partner of both the learners and CME providers, we recognize that
continuing education can impact the healthcare environment only through
collaboration, cooperation, and communication among its various stakeholders.
Therefore, Outcomes Reports from this Initiative will be shared with
Providing extensive Outcomes Assessment from this Initiative is in keeping with our commitment
to innovative approaches that contribute to a better understanding of the healthcare environment
and, thus, offers solutions for addressing quality improvement.
