In Lesson 1, you learned to create a detailed plan for a PDSA cycle. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to execute the rest of the cycle (Do-Study-Act). First, you’ll find out how to increase the scale and scope of your test cycles without muddying the results. Next, you’ll follow along as a clinic tests a new form to spot depression among patients with diabetes. Working through that example, you’ll learn how to ensure accurate data collection and adjust course if your test of change doesn’t go as planned.
Estimated Time of Completion: 35 minutes
After completing this lesson, you will be able to:

2. Plan a set of PDSA cycles to enable sequential building of knowledge
3. Identify reasons for failed PDSA tests, learn from them, and apply this learning to the next PDSA test.
