Question Answer
What does PDSA stand for?1) plan 2) do 3) study 4) act
What is the PDSA model used for in relation to a number of industries?1) to improve processes 2) improve outcomes
With the growing emphasis on volume-based vs. ______-based care, many medical institutions and practices are adopting this model to improve patient outcomes?value
Describe the PLAN phase?a practice identifies a problem and develops an intervention designed to improve the outcome
Describe the DO phase? Give examples?1) practice implementing the proposed intervention 2) examples would include provider or staff education, a new process or patient education
Describe the STUDY phase?the practice evaluates the EFFECTIVENESS intervention
Describe the ACT phase?the practice refines or adds to the process to further improve outcomes
*** The development of a secondary intervention would be considered an _____ activity as it was developed in response to the initial intervention?ACT
To improve the effectiveness of the PDSA cycle, it is advisable to identify what parameters to evaluate during the planning phase?1) specific parameters 2) measureable parameters
Give examples of measurable parameters?1) processes (performing a foot exam or asking a pt about smoking cessation) 2) outcomes (the number of hypertensive patients achieving recommended BP control)
What 2 modalities are great aids in recording and reporting data for both baseline and final data analysis?1) electronic medical records OR 2) patient registries
The "do" phase is based on an implementation plan, which in addition to provider and staff education may include establishment of an ______ protocol and determination of a start date and study period?intervention protocol
What is the STUDY period designed to do?1) to review performance (both baseline and at the end of the study period) 2) evaluate successes 3) to identify obstacles to success by all practice participants
Based ont he findings of the study period, what additional work may be done to ensure continued success or to improve performance further?the proposed intervention may be EXPANDED or MODIFIED
The PDSA cycle can be repeated several times in what is termed a ______ cycle process to continuously improve the intervention to maximize results?rapid
What is the goal of the PDSA model?to design a good (NOT necessarily perfect intervention) which will be IMPROVED upon or perfected as it is implemented and continously evaluated and refined
*** SUMMARY = What does the PDSA model stand for?1) plan 2) do 3) study 4) act
*** SUMMARY = The PDSA model is for _______ improvement?performance
*** SUMMARY = To improve the effectiveness of the PDSA cycle, it is advisable to identify ______ and ________ parameters to evaluate during the planning phase?specific; measurable
*** SUMMARY = Increasingly, the PDSA cycle is repeated several times in what is termed a _____ cycle process to continuously improve the intervention to maximize results?rapid
