The purpose of the research subproject is to identify the perceived facilitators and barriers to quality improvement (QI) in primary care mental health (PCMH). The intent of the research subproject is to develop a tool (i.e. checklist) for assessing an organization’s readiness to undertake quality measurement. The purpose of such a tool would be to identify the facilitators and barriers to quality measurement in a specific primary care setting, thus enabling customized implementation planning, organized around a practice’s unique strengths and challenges. A combination of quantitative and qualitative research methods may be used to address the following research objectives.
The literature review will inform the research design and methods for identifying the perceived facilitators and barriers to QI in specific health regions.
