The Enhancing Quality Improvement for Patients (EQuIP) Program

The Enhancing Quality Improvement for Patients (EQuIP) Program at the LSU School of Medicine is an institution-wide initiative to engage residents and fellows in systems-based quality improvement programs. In cooperation with faculty supervisors and mentors, the EQuIP program will empower the House Officers of the LSU School of Medicine to contribute to scholarly activity and the implementation of clinical quality improvement initiatives at our affiliated training institutions, with the goal of improving outcomes for patients and inculcating a culture of quality improvement and patient safety.

The LSU School of Medicine’s Enhancing Quality Improvement for Patients (EQuIP) rotation provides an in-depth orientation to the principles of quality improvement, patient safety, and process improvement for House Officers. The rotation is available as a two (2) - four (4) week block and offers a flexible schedule and curriculum to best accommodate resident quality and safety education needs.

Questions?  Visit the EQuIP rotation page.

The goal of projectCONNECT is to improve participation in quality improvement initiatives at clinical sites by providing a searchable database of current, ongoing QI projects. This resource encourages interprofessional collaboration on patient safety & quality initiatives at LSU School of Medicine’s clinical partner sites. For more information, contact the EQuIP office at EQuIP@lsuhsc.edu or click the projectCONNECT link below.ProjectConnect
