Quality Improvement (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 in 2010. The QI Quick Guide consists of a Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) Tutorial, a Quick Quiz, and tailored resources.


The Quick Guide was revised and updated in 2017. The improved QI Quick Guide will help you determine which resources to use when pursuing improvement projects within your organization. The Quick Guide is also available on TRAIN as Course 1030628 for those interested in keeping a record of completion in their TRAIN transcripts.

"helps with great teamwork and self improvement" - Marlene, reviewer of the QI Quick Guide on the TRAIN Learning Network

  • Assess your familiarity with QI
  • Identify your QI needs
  • Discover QI resources tailored to your knowledge and experience level
