Partnership Defined Quality Approach-Tool Book for Community and Health Provider Collaboration for Quality Improvement
Partnership Defined Quality is a methodology to improve the quality and accessibility of services with community involvement in defining, implementing, and monitoring the quality improvement process. Partnership Defined Quality (PDQ) links quality assessment and improvement with community mobilization.
The goal of this tool is to provide a rights-based approach to programming so that every community member understands and is able to exercise the right to quality health care and clients and providers recognize their own responsibility to maintain and improve the health care delivery, and in doing so, achieve better health status for all.
