  • About the Course
  • Implementing real-world change is challenging. Using rapid-cycle, small-scale tests of change and human factors design (HFD) principles are extremely helpful tools to tackle quality improvement changes. This interactive course applies the PDSA and HFD tools, concepts and methodologies to real-world projects and case studies to help students understand how to use these principles in real life.

    It is highly recommended that participants complete the WLA virtual classes "Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA); A Toolkit for Implementing PDSA Cycles" and "Human Factors Design" before attending this in-person workshop. Instructors will assume that participants are familiar with the virtual class content. Participants should also bring a real-world improvement project that they are interested in working on to discuss in class.
