Performance Measurement Learning Collaborative

The purpose of the learning collaborative is to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas related to performance measurement. The collaborative meets at least quarterly to discuss topics related to planning, implementing, and reporting on the outcomes of Lifespan Respite grant activities. Based on the interest and proprieties of the group, guest speakers may join to share their expertise on topics such as: identifying and accessing data sources, practical strategies for tracking progress on goals and objectives and methods, and best practices for reporting on data to stakeholders.

The collaborative explores ways to measure performance related to the stated purposes of the Lifespan Respite Care Program; specifically, strategies for measuring the degree to which programs expand and enhance respite care services to family members; improve statewide dissemination and coordination of respite care; and provide, supplement, or improve access and quality of respite care services to family caregivers. The collaborative will identify and seek solutions to challenges of measuring system’s change outcomes as well as the outcomes of caregivers and their families.

You are welcome to join the collaborative whether you have a well-established system for measuring and reporting on your performance targets, are just starting to plan a performance measurement strategy, or are somewhere in-between.
