Quality Improvement (QI) work in public health settings has predominately centered on clinical aspects (i.e., improving clinic wait times).
However, QI has the potential to be applied across divisions outside of the clinic to help influence the quality of programs in other areas, such as health promotion.
This presentation will outline the application of the QI LEAN approach to the improvement of a health promotion program focused on participation in an after school initiative called “Females Using Energy for Life” (FUEL), which focused on increasing physical activity amongst female youth.
