  • What Does Quality Improvement Have to Offer #blacklivesmatter?
    Race has an impact on health above and beyond income and education As we conceptualize equity focused population health considering race as a primary driver of inequity is essential Over a decade ago Camara Phyllis Jones president of the American Public Health Association developed a framework for understanding racism First there is institutional racism that promotes differential access to goods and services This includes historical insult structural barriers inaction and the practice of unearned privilege Next comes personally mediated racism that is manifested as prejudice and discrimination which become expressed through every day actions such as poor service purse clutching surprise at competencies scapegoating and dehumanization The result is pathogenesis that is manifested by increased systemic inflammation leading to heart disease stroke cancer poor birth outcomes and diabetes Finally and a direct result of years of racism people developed an acceptance of the negative messages about their own worth that leads to poor adherence self devaluation resignation helplessness and hopelessness The field of quality improvement has an opportunity to acknowledge racism and commit to being part of the national discussion and the solution As quality improvers we have a unique lens and set of tools to bring to achieving aims and bettering the systems linked to those aims We could bring quality improvement to police departments and communities to set measurable aims test new ways of working and track data to determine whether the new way is bringing about the desired improvement The aim is to reduce the percentage of police encounters that result in killings of men women and transgender people of color by police The drivers or key system elements to outline in partnership with police community members and other stakeholders might include police training community police trust racism and policies Next we would break down further each of those key system elements to their parts and outline actionable changes to test Key to a QI approach is the identification of reliable measures that will tell us at regular monthly intervals what impact the changes we are testing are having on our key drivers and on the overall aim What the QI field can bring is a systematic way of generating change ideas from local knowledge and bright spots a regular rhythm of testing changes and rigorous use of data to inform next steps The blacklivesmatter movement is reacting to unwanted and avoidable outcomes in our police and justice systems and we have tools and coaching skills to support improvement As we faithfully do in our work to improve health care we would ask three questions the Model for Improvement What are we trying to accomplish How will we know that a change is an improvement What changes can we make that will result in improvement And as experts in change management we also know that this will require more than an aim and a driver diagram because change is social and complex We will have to develop strategies to engage leaders in this work to tap into
