QAPI

Have any of you started doing QAPI as opposed to the old fashioned CQI or QA?

We are about to start and my staff is freaking out. I've printed out almost everything from the CMS website but it still looks like a daunting task.

I attended a conference and one of the speakers discussed using morning meeting as a daily QAPI....anyone of you doing that? Any forms you're using you'd care to share?

I too have attended a conference regarding QAPI and have some forms I can share, but I'm really having difficulty understanding the process & concept. My administrator still wants traditional QA completed & submitted, so the additional task seems really far fetched...

We are in the same boat. It seems very confusing. Maybe a new inservice will come around to be more informative.

We call it QAPI but only a few of us are relating our project to a potential tag which is the point of QAPI. I wouldn't mind doing a project but I have trouble coming up with one that is useful. I used to always to CQIs on the tags we got on survey, but, oh right....we haven't gotten any for two years :cheeky:
