Assessing Quality Improvement Team PRocesses: A Meeting Observation and Assessment Tool

Edit resource

Emily Sedlock and Colleagues discuss their current research at the SciTS 2018 Conference. Their research revolved around creating and piloting a test to assess the effectiveness of quality improvement team meetings. MOAT was used to track the frequency and efficacy of skills/tools taught by facilitating change, meeting facilitation training and RPI quality improvement training, basic teamwork behaviors, and patient/family engagement and contributions to quality improvement teams. In conclusion, the results were promising but the researchers found that MOAT needs more testing on additional QI teams
