                                                      PDSA Worksheet
Chronic Disease Content Area:
  Diabetes and Obesity     Arthritis and Osteoporosis    Heart Failure and Hypertension     Asthma and COPD              Depression and Pain

Objective: _________________________________________________________________________
Hint: Describe the self‐management change idea you want to test. The objective will require multiple, small tests (PDSA cycles) of change 
over time. E.g., “We will improve the rate of patients who have identified self‐management goals by 50% by December 2008.” 

Plan
            Describe your first (or next) test of change: This is the first step 
                                                                                                 Person               When to         Where to
            of the PDSA cycle. Remember, this is rapid, short cycle testing. Think really 
                                                                                               responsible            be done         be done
            small and shortest possible time frame.

Do               Describe what actually happened when you ran the test (use your imagination).


Study            Describe the measured results and how they compared to the predictions (use your 
                 imagination). 



Act              Describe modifications to be made to the plan for the next cycle from what you learned.
