Measurement is critical to quality improvement and allows us to determine whether changes made result in benefit or improvement. Teams involved in the Collaborative are measuring a range of aspects including;
- Process measures to test if changes to processes are occurring in a consistent and reliable ways
- Outcome measures to determine if change is having the desired effect e.g. a reduction in the rate of third and fourth degree tears
- Balancing measures to ensure change does not have unforeseen impacts. e.g increased Caesarean section rates
- Evaluation of teaching and learning being undertaken by Collaborative teams
A thorough review of the collaborative improvement process will also be conducted and published here as results become available.
