Measurement for Improvement


Measurement is an integral part of helping you determine whether a change you make in your practice is an improvement. It will help you make decisions around whether to adapt, adopt or abandon a change. This in-person session will walk you through the principle of measurement for improvement. It is designed to introduce the perspectives we should take, as improvement teams, on measuring the outcomes of our improvement efforts. This session will also introduce some of the key metrics related to access, including details to support teams understanding of how to collect data in their practice. Teams will be expected to collect some data during the first action period so this will provide a good introduction as to how this can be accomplished.

At the end of the workshop you will be able to:

  • Describe how you will be able to determine whether changes you make in your practice actually result in an improvement
  • Discuss and plan how the key measures for the collaborative will be collected in your practice
  • Define each key measure and consider how the application of these will affect your data collection processes.
