Sharing Results of Quality-Assurance/Quality-Improvement Activities

One way to display results is through the use of posters or storyboards. Storyboards can be posted in public areas of the clinic or in staff-only areas. They serve as a simple graphical representation of the nature of the process being improved, the steps that were taken, and the results that were achieved.

Include your results in newsletters and annual reports. If the clinic becomes accredited, report successful accreditation surveys to the local press and media. 

Another great suggestion is to make quality a standing agenda item for your dental staff meetings. This keeps quality as a prominent focus for your dental team.
