available downloads

This is the first of nine modules in the Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) Toolkit. The toolkit supports MIECHV awardees and others in working with local agencies to build capacity in CQI. Modules may be delivered individually by CQI staff or as part of a multiday training activity.

Module 1 helps participants—

  • Understand what CQI means
  • Learn why it is important for home visiting programs to participate in CQI
  • Understand the difference between quality assurance and quality improvement

As with all modules in the CQI Toolkit, Module 1 contains a facilitation guide, PowerPoint slides with facilitation notes, and handouts and activities for participants. For example, Module 1 includes a quiz on quality assurance versus quality improvement for participants to complete in breakout groups. Use the available downloads box to access the module components.
