This online course will help DSMES program staff to confidently select CQI projects and implement the process in a manner that not only meets the goals of Standard 10, Quality Improvement of the NSDSMES, but that has a positive impact on improving program services for people with diabetes.
Upon completion of the course, learners will be able to select and implement an effective CQI project that best meets the needs of their DSMES program, as well as Standard 10, Quality Improvement of the NSDSMES.
