Implementation science and fidelity measures in radiology
Boston University, Boston, USA
: J Clin Exp Oncol
Radiologists face quality improvement projects, process improvement endeavors and overall efforts to improve efficiency on a regular basis. While many are versed in the tools of process improvement including Lean, Six Sigma, Kaizen, few radiologists know how to use fidelity measures to ensure sustained changes in their action plans for quality safety or efficiency. Likewise not many radiologists know the basics of implementation science. The presentation will outline the principles of implementation science and the use of fidelity measures for radiologists with specific anecdotes. The lecture uses a dynamic didactic style with heuristic tools.
