Aim of pilot study TO EVALUATE THE QUANUM CHECKLISTS The (individual) answers to questions are not important ! Wether or not questions are clear is important ! Webpage relevant announcments, documents, FAQs,… (Feed-back meeting half way ± 01/12/2010) Suggestions ? How can we help ? How much time ? All questions clear ? All questions applicable ? What can we do to make QUANUM easier ?
