Evaluate & Celebrate
Quality Improvement Project, Advance Care Planning / Goals of Care

Now that you have implemented some changes the final step is to see if ACP/GCD improvements have been made.

Did you achieve or exceed your goals?

If so, congratulations. From here, sustaining your improvements should be the focus of future steps.

Ensure your improvements are sustained by measuring your practice and bringing up ACP/GCD in team meetings as a recurring agenda item. From this, next steps can be identified by you and your team.

If your goals aren’t yet achieved, keep in mind that you’re likely still farther ahead than you were! From here, take a closer look at what you have learned and plan for another improvement cycle.

Either way, recognize everyone’s contributions and celebrate.
