RQI®: Resuscitation Quality Improvement
Verified CPR competence is the new standard of care. The RQI 2025 programs can help your organization deliver this new standard to your patients, and does so at a lower cost than the traditional program.
You are dedicated to improving the quality and reliability of the care your staff provides. It’s the driving force in your mission to save lives and improve the health of your community. We understand, because that’s what drives us, too. RQI replaces skills decay with verified competence and saves lives.
Every year more than 200,000 cardiac arrests occur in US hospitals. However, only 25% of patients survive with a 3-fold variation across hospitals. The ability to consistently administer high-quality CPR is critical to improving outcomes and is the last chance for survival in a cardiac arrest emergency.
Studies show that the conventional 2-year BLS training cycle is not optimal for achieving the mastery learning of high-quality CPR skills needed to save more lives. Skills decay in as few as 3 months after training is completed. The RQI 2025 programs provide a high-reliability platform for simulation-based mastery learning, implemented through low-dose, high-frequency quality improvement sessions that measure and verify competence.
The RQI 2025 programs include four courses. Completion of each course generates an eCredential for the learner. RQI satisfies requirements for providers and accreditation requirements for hospitals. Modules available include:
- RQI Healthcare Provider
- RQI ALS
- RQI PALS
- RQI for NRP, available June, 2021
- RQI Responder, geared for ancillary and support staff at RQI hospitals
Completion of each course generates an eCredential for the learner.
