Introduction to a Guided Self Assessment

2 CQL | The Council on Quality and Leadership
Who we are…… International not-for-profit organization dedicated to the definition, measurement, and improvement of personal and community quality of life for people with disabilities and people with mental illness.

3 CQL | The Council on Quality and Leadership
Vision – A world of dignity, opportunity and community inclusion for all people. Mission – To provide leadership for greater world-wide inclusion and quality of life for people with disabilities

4 CQL | The Council on Quality and Leadership
Partners in Excellence; Leadership for the Journey. CQL is at the forefront of improving the quality of services and supports for people with disabilities and people with mental illness. We have been leading this effort for more than three decades. Everyone has a right to a life of dignity, opportunity and community inclusion. Our journey continues with the daily work of establishing real connections between disabilities’ theory and practice

5 CQL | The Council on Quality and Leadership
1970s and 1980s: Basic Assurances® and Compliance in Services CQL (then the Accreditation Council) developed national consensus standards for organizations providing services to people with intellectual disabilities. The standards reflected the principles and values of professionals, families, provider organizations and government agencies. These standards (1971, 1973, 1978, 1981, 1985, 1987 and 1990) were incorporated into federal court rulings, the Health Care Financing Administration’s (now CMS) Medicaid standards and numerous state licensing requirements.

6 CQL | The Council on Quality and Leadership
1990s: Personal Outcome Measures® CQL developed the Personal Outcome Measures® by holding focus groups with people with disabilities and their families. The Personal Outcome Measures ® were piloted in two states and ten field tests occurred in the United States and Canada. CQL’s initiative in redefining quality in terms of personal outcomes influenced subsequent development of person-directed approaches in numerous states, at CMS and within intellectual disabilities and mental health communities.

7 CQL | The Council on Quality and Leadership
2000s: Social Capital and Community Life® CQL is now focusing on the social and community context for the attainment of personal quality of life. Strong social capital enables all of us to live healthier and happier lives, increase our community affiliations, and exercise choice and self-determination. The challenge of organizations and support groups is not only to engage in person-directed processes; rather it is to use the person-directed orientation to build social capital and Community Life® for all people.

17 Basic Assurances® The Basic Assurances® use three terms to distinguish levels within the measures: Factor refers to the main topic area. Indicators are the specific expectations for that factor.

41 Basic Assurances® Factor One System Practice
Rights Protection and Promotion Check if yes Supporting Information The organization implements policies and procedures that promote people’s rights. Probes: Does the policy define the organization’s commitment to protect and promote people’s rights? Does the policy contain a listing of rights afforded all citizens as indicated by the United Nation’s Declaration of Rights and by the constitution and laws of the country in which people reside?       System Practice

42 Definitions and Decision Making
Systems – organizational supports that provide the structure for organizational practice. These can be policies and procedures, staff training, or other types of systems – ensure sustainability Practice – what is observed in daily operations. This demonstrates how an organization’s supports are put into action

43 Exercise instructions
Read narrative for your assigned Factor in the manual For each indicator, list examples of systems that support For one indicator, list three suggestions to validate practice

44 What about Personal Outcome Measures®?
Strong Systems + Good Practice = RESULTS!!

45 Self Assessment Tips Start NOW Involve multiple stakeholders
Assume learning will cause change Expect a “messy” self assessment document Remember – these are person focused assurances Avoid overly complex design Communicate, communicate, communicate!

46 Self Assessment Process
Thoroughly review each factor and its indicators in “teams” List organizational systems that support each indicator Describe how systems work (independently and together) and identify gaps or need to revise Consider data in particular Dig deeper – review each indicator and the probes Cross reference with systems list

47 Self Assessment Process (continued)
Develop tools (assessments, data collection formats) and revise policy as needed. Eliminate redundant or unnecessary tools Develop flow chart for each factor including person(s) responsible, time frames, method for analysis Identify reporting mechanism and time frames for summarizing to the larger organization (Factor 10)

48 Suggested Strategies to Validate Practice
Talk with people (Personal Outcome Measures® interviews, targeted interviews, focus groups) Talk to families and staff Spend time with people informally Document review Analyze for gaps between identified systems and practice
