Digging Deeper with Root Cause Analysis

Continuing medical education planning usually includes a needs assessment. 

But sometimes it’s pretty challenging to get to the root cause of clinical or professional practice gaps, because they are often multifactorial.

That’s where root cause analysis comes in.

In episode 37 of Write Medicine, Greg Salinas, PhD, President of CE Outcomes, discusses his unique approach to needs assessments using root cause analysis. He emphasizes that the literature tells us that practice gaps exist (the what), but that we learn more about why gaps exist through direct outreach to clinicians and other stakeholders.

We explore what root cause analysis involves, its benefits for CME needs assessments, and how to approach it using conversational interviews and qualitative analysis.
