In this recorded course with Jennifer Windram, RN, BSN, learn skills and tools necessary to apply State Licensure rules in data collection and monitoring for your Quality Management Program.

This program includes overall requirements for a compliant quality management program and QMP components such as: data collection, data monitoring, identifying problems and areas for improvement, implementing corrective/improvement actions and monitoring those actions to decide if they were effective or not.

In this course, Quality Management – All about Data, we focus on the data collection and monitoring aspect of a QM program. This will include a more in-depth discussion of data collection and data compilation methods, with additional sample tools to help you streamline your data collection and documentation processes.
