The PDSA cycle is helpful for talking through examples of your specific priority areas Approach... Source: Testing Changes Plan, Do, Study, Act 3 Step 1: Plan State the objective of the test Make predictions about what will happen and why Develop a plan to test the change (who? What? When? Where? What data need to be collected?) Step 2: Do Carry out the test Document problems and unexpected observations Begin analysis of the data Step 3: Study Complete the analysis of the data Compare the data to your predictions Summarize and reflect on what was learned Step 4: Act Determine what modifications should be made Prepare a plan for the next test
