In this 90-minute interactive webinar, participants will learn how the principles, tools, and approaches to continuous quality improvement (CQI) can optimize their prevention work. Additionally, we will discuss how to incorporate the key tools of CQI – including the Plan, Do, Study, Act cycle from NIATx – into all phases of your prevention work to ensure your programs are efficient, effective, and stay on track. The application of CQI throughout the SPF process with a focus on the implementation phase will also be explored.

  • Describe how CQI applies to the Strategic Prevention Framework
  • Apply CQI tools to evidence-based programs with consideration of fidelity
