The webinar will introduce participants to:

  • Tools for understanding processes and systems and how to use them
  • How using these tools can help identify possible solutions to reach your aim
  • How to choose indicators for process and outcome
  • How to use these indicators to track progress of improvement

The presentation will be followed a Q & A session.
