Planning with Data workshop (for site leads):
This year's Planning with Data has been revamped and redesigned to be a Train the Trainer (TOT) session. Please send your site lead to attend the session who will take this back and be able to lead the planning session within your organization. By the end of the session, participants will be knowledgeable about how to interpret YPQI data, and how to lead a collaborative, team-created quality improvement plan with your site. You will leave with a toolkit of resources, ideas and access to other supports to lead an effective and successful planning process. We will also have your Assessment Reports there for you so you can start looking through them and planning your process for the PLAN stage of the YPQI.
