Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Within healthcare systems, quality improvement (QI) methodologies and implementation science (IS) techniques are used to identify optimal processes to improve care delivery. Nurses remain at the forefront of care delivery, and must understand the basic components of QI and IS in order to advocate for improved efficiencies, address challenges to evidence-based practice utilization, and monitor incremental changes to positively impact benchmarks and patient outcomes.
