The PDSA Cycle: Plan-Do-Study-Act Cycle for Rapid Cycle Problem Solving (Lesson)

January, 2014

This online lesson describes the key components in each PDSA Cycle phase and identifies why and when PDSA Cycles are used for rapid cycle problem solving in active implementation. After the lesson, you should be able to apply a PDSA Cycle to engage in rapid cycle problem solving as a Team.

Located on the Active Implementation Hub Workspace, this narrated, interactive and animated lesson is one of four individual units designed to build implementation capacity and fluency in the use of Applied Implementation Science.

This series demonstrates how the Active Implementation Frameworks can be applied in healthcare environments. Lessons include actual examples of how Implementation Teams applied and used the tools and processes in a Rehabilitation Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
