Annotation

This interactive skill building session introduces quality improvement tools (e.g. Fishbone, 5 Whys) that can assist states in conducting root cause analysis related to health reform within their state. The session offers stateā€specific examples and provide participants an opportunity to apply the tools. The Affordable Care Act offers opportunities to improve public health and health care delivery systems, and ultimately health outcomes for MCH populations. Title V programs are in a position to help lead efforts to implement health system reforms that result in improvement. Success in leading change will require new skills and strategies aimed at collaborating with multidisciplinary partners to address the underlying system issues that negatively impact health.
