EquipLCU: Victories, Trials, and Lessons Learned with QEP Implementation
The planning of a QEP cannot account for all the issues that arise once implementation begins. Therefore, those directing the initiative must make necessary adjustments that enable a successful venture. This may involve additional assessments and changes that were not anticipated. However, along with this come the victories that can be celebrated throughout the institution, helping everyone recognize how the institution's quality is enhanced. Inevitably, lessons are learned. These realizations, which only come after implementation begins, will be addressed in this session in hopes of aiding others as they navigate this process.
