This one-day workshop is designed for healthcare professionals who will be actively involved in data driven performance improvement efforts. Through hands-on learning, participants will gain skills for gathering data and applying basic statistical analysis to data sets to address key problems in quality and service delivery within a healthcare organization. In addition, participants will build key competencies in creation of charts and graphs in MS-Excel using a practical data set. Participants will also learn the soft skills needed to make their projects a success: how to gain organizational support, how to present the results using techniques that inspire change, and how to facilitate continued progress. Taught with a mix of lecture, hands-on Excel exercises, group discussion, and teamwork, this workshop will provide you with the skills and practice time that empower you to turn your performance improvement ideas into actual success stories.
