The Quality Standards (QS) team has developed a tool called the QS Placemat, to complement the resources that are part of the quality standards package. We are reaching out to primary care providers to help us test and understand the functionality and usefulness of the QS placemats.
The placemats are a quick-reference tool that concisely summarizes each of the quality statements from the quality standard, highlighting the key elements of diagnosis, assessment, and treatment for that condition, and also includes links to helpful resources and tools. Its at-a-glance format maximizes its ease of use in clinical settings, and is an evidence-based resource that can be used by primary care providers to enhance patient-centered discussions. The placemat can also be shared with patients and families to help empower patients in the management of their own care.
Currently, there are six quality standard placemats available:
We would like to ask you to use any of the QS Placemats for approximately 2 weeks, after which we will follow up with a short survey that will give you the opportunity to provide feedback on the usefulness of the tool. We understand this is a busy time for you and appreciate your interest in supporting the ongoing improvement of our resources. We would appreciate any and all feedback you can provide.
Would you be willing to help us test and provide feedback on the placemats?
