Continuous Quality Improvement Timeline

Quality improvement in health care has continuously grown throughout the years. Health care team members continuously ask themselves, “How are we doing?” and “Can we do it better?”

Research 4 to 5 events that have influenced changes in quality improvement and complete the timeline below by listing each event and writing a 75- to 175-word summary discussing each event and its effect on quality improvement in health care.

Cite at least 3 peer-reviewed, scholarly, or similar references and your textbook to support your information.
