Improvement Science Model

Over a six-month period, ICE-Africa program participants form a cohort of healthcare professionals embarking on a challenging and rigorous process that offers the understanding and tools necessary to solve problems in complex healthcare environments.

As part of the program, each participant will select a set of team members (at least 2) with whom they will work to complete an improvement project. Our faculty and team mentors provide consultation and support for this important hands-on experience.

Participants learn to conduct state-of-the-art clinical practice improvement projects, use quality improvement methods to manage and integrate non-clinical processes, implement quality improvement programs, and conduct internal quality improvement training.

The remote learning is punctuated by a symposium where participants have the opportunity to present their projects to their fellow cohort participants. The ICE-Africa program also allows participants the opportunity to join both national and international networks that provide ongoing support and information sharing for future collaborations.
