Enhancing Quality Improvement for Patients (EQuIP) Equipping Louisiana with a Quality Future.
What Is EQuIP and Why Do We Do It? School-wide initiative Engage residents and fellows in systems-based quality improvement and patient safety (QI/PS) projects. Neither fully top-down nor fully bottom-up. Next Accreditation System: CLER Visits – Reviews the integration of GME and clinical facilities in: Quality improvement Patient safety initiatives Supervision Fatigue management and mitigation Transitions in care Resident duty hours Professionalism http://www.acgme-nas.org/cler.html

EQuIP Steering Committee EQuIP Operations Committee and Staff Residents and Fellows Teaching Hospitals and Other clinical sites Program Directors & Coordinators
Participation in Hospital Committees Approximately 150 residents and fellows Part of committees at 4 clinical sites – e.g. infection control; ethics; Population Health/Disease Management programs; etc. Challenges: Committee meeting times
Participation in Independent QI Projects Approximately 125 individual and group projects – Conducted by and with ~ 465 house officers – Data collection and intervention at ~ 15 clinical sites (hospitals and clinics) – General Surgery residents in class-based projects to ensure continuity Challenges: Ensuring value/feasibility of individual projects
Nurse Manager of Quality Management at ILH collects current PI programs, committees, and projects. Listing is maintained on a drive shared between the QM and EQuIP offices. LSU Residency Program Director and/or residents request participation in ILH committee/project from the EQuIP office. EQuIP coordinator sends an email to the physician leads (CC to core group liaison, Dr. Zee Ali, and Patrick Reed) as an introduction and for approval of the resident assignment. Lead Approval Resident given dates, time location, and instructions as appropriate from the project lead. YES Return to the beginning for a new project NO Ms. Harkin will keep EQuIP workbook updated with resident assignments. When the EQuIP office notices an individual or group project requiring significant institutional resources,the EQuIP director or coordinator will (1) forward that project's details to ILH leadership to solicit approval and (2) referred residents/faculty to the LSUHSC IRB and to the ILH Research Review Committee for evaluation.
Next Steps Quality Improvement Day (May 14, 2013). Evaluate resident performance on hospital committees (Spring 2013). Gather preliminary results of EQuIP projects (Summer 2013). Roll out QI/PS curriculum to faculty and hospital personnel (TBD). More robust project review mechanism ( AY 2013-2014).
