The presenters will describe basic concepts of quality improvement that will guide the approach to this year-long learning collaborative, including steps to develop a logic model and use it to guide quality improvement plan-do-study-act (PDSA) cycles and measurement. Attendees will be equipped to engage their team in the learning collaborative and start to develop their individualized logic model for improvement of well-care visits for perinatal women.
