Implementing the New CAHPS Protocol for Obtaining Patient Comments About Their Care (Webcast)
This Webcast from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) discussed methods and early results from a pilot project assessing the implementation and use of the new CAHPS Patient Narrative Elicitation Protocol in several NewYork-Presbyterian ambulatory care practices. Designed to be used with the CAHPS Clinician & Group Survey or on its own, the Narrative Elicitation Protocol consists of 5 open-ended questions that prompt patients' accounts of their care experiences.
Speakers shared what they have learned from interviews with clinicians and practice leaders about the characteristics of narrative feedback reporting strategies that are important to guiding improvement.
