The Personal Continuous Quality Improvement Work Book by Duncan Neuhauser, Sylvia Myhre, and Farrokh Alemi has been used all over the world to teach health professional students about quality improvement. Typically students are given a copy of the work book and asked to use the quality tools to improve some process in their life. Typical choices include more exercise, diet change, watching less television or improving study habits, but many other topics are possible.
