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.
