Mentors for Quality (M4Q)

Program Overview

ASHNHA recognizes the value of developing peer-to-peer networks between hospitals to improve care for Alaskans. The Mentors for Quality Program concept derived from the need to provide a platform for hospital-to-hospital learning and sharing in order to accelerate the implementation of best practices at every level, from the front-line to leadership. At the heart of it, mentoring is simply a partnership between someone with vast experience and someone who wants to learn more in order to better achieve professional goals. With that basic idea, the Mentors for Quality program formalizes the mentoring relationship by providing structure and employing the use of the Model for Improvement to develop and implement specific improvement projects.

Mentors for Quality is currently on hold but may begin again in 2018. If you are interested in being on our list for the next M4Q group, please email Debbie.
