Our Cargo Container: Formalizing and Professionalizing Equity-based Improvement Science

One of the challenges of any promising reform is that it gets poorly implemented, poorly targeted, and when these lesser versions don’t get results it hurts the entire effort. Shouldn’t the next step in the work be to formalize exactly what Equity-driven Improvement Science is and what it isn’t and to provide a process by which efforts can be compared and rated against a common framework and rubric? What might that look like? Who should participate in the crafting, and how might that picture be put forward as a structure to promote the best-aligned efforts?
