Welcome to QI Quick Guide!

With a contribution from the National Library of Medicine, the Public Health Foundation (PHF) developed a Quality Improvement (QI) Quick Guide for public health practitioners, which was launched online in August 2010.  The QI Quick Guide addresses a need identified by public health practitioners for assistance in determining which resources to use as they pursue QI initiatives.  The QI Quick Guide consists of a web-based QI User Guide and a Tutorial, which provide a gateway to hundreds of resources linked from PHF’s Online Resource Centers — the Public Health Improvement Resource Center and the National Public Health Performance Standards Program Online Resource Center.

Getting Started Tips:

  • It will take approximately 10 minutes to complete the QI User Guide and 20-30 minutes to complete the Tutorial.
  • You may begin at either site to gain access to hundreds of QI resources geared towards improving public health practice.
  • Beginner and advanced QI resources will appear throughout the QI Quick Guide and are organized by topics.  For example, resources that support the Plan phase of the Plan-Do-Check-Act Cycle are found in Related Resources beneath Slide 5 of the Tutorial.
  • Clicking on the resource title will take you directly to the resource. You can also find additional related resources in the Public Health Improvement Resource Center.
