Sustaining Improved Outcomes: A Toolkit


As quality improvement continues to be a major focus in the areas of public health, health care, social service, education and related fields, there is growing interest in developing strategies to ensure that such improvement is sustained in the long term.

Although there is general agreement that it is ineffective from either an implementation or a funding perspective to make improvements that do not last, there is a need for clear definitions and models to guide sustainability.

In this toolkit, we focus on how to sustain improved outcomes that have been achieved during project implementation and provide a framework for assessing and planning for sustainability.

Focus Area: Community Health Capacity, Older Adults, Young Children Impacted by Poverty
