112 Developing Proper Sample Size Methodologies for CQI (UPDATED)

Traditional approaches to sample sizes for contractual continuous quality improvement audits lack statistical relevance, which leads to unreliable results, undermines the purpose of the audit, reduces the chance of detecting the true effect, and lowers the reproducibility of the results. This presentation will review proper sample size development and methodology that takes into consideration limited resources and time.

Educational Objectives

  • Describe how to develop proper sample sizes for correctional health care audits
  • Calculate the expected proportion based on historical audits to determine the factor of interest in the population
  • Discuss how to communicate this method with stakeholders to optimize support for CQI activities
