Measures to National Quality Forum – 2

  • Woods, Donna (PD/PI)

Project: Research project

Project Details


The Northwestern investigative team will prepare PMCoE measure submissions for 2 ADHD quality measures, 2 PICU quality measures, and 1 Developmental Screening Follow-up quality measure. The Northwestern team will conduct necessary literature reviews and analyses, describe the testing methods, results, limitations, lessons learned, and implications for measure use. These materials will be put into the National Quality Forum (NQF) format and provided to Dr. Sachdeva and staff for submission by the Medical College of Wisconsin to NQF. As is required for this line of funding, Dr. Woods will travel to 3 separate, specific NQF meetings, at which each of the submitted measures are being presented and discussed. Dr. Woods along with Dr. Sachdeva will attend the NQF meeting and will make a brief presentation of the importance of the measure topic, the evidence on which the measure is built, the nature of the performance gap the measure is intended to address, the testing methods, the validity and reliability results, as well as the measure performance scores. Dr. Woods along with Dr. Sachdeva will answer any questions the NQF Committee have regarding the presented measures.
