Transitions & Quality Improvement
Quality improvement is the purposeful, recurrent assessment of health services and patient outcomes that leads to measureable and sustainable improvements in healthcare delivery and ultimately the health of individuals and populations. The guiding principles of quality improvement require transdisciplinary teams to use data and evidence from promising practices to improve processes and systems that focus on the patient or target population.
Purdue University West Lafayette School of Nursing helps DNP students delve deeply into cutting edge literature to more fully understand and apply research as it pertains to their clinical interests and then apply the principles of Quality Improvement to design policies, programs, and procedures that wisely use healthcare resources, reflect best practices, and contribute to measureable improvements in patient outcomes.
