A New Survey for Assessing the Primary Care Experience for Homeless Patients, the PCQ-H
Stefan Kertesz, MD MSc
Seminar date: 6/5/2014
Description: The patient centered medical home encourages the delivery of primary care tailored to population needs. Homeless individuals offer a particularly compelling example of a population whose primary care needs and concerns are likely to differ from those typical in mainstream populations. Assessing whether primary care meets homeless persons' needs requires their input. Problematically, standard patient experience questionnaires were not designed to assess concerns prioritized by vulnerable populations such as the homeless.
This presentation will introduce a new primary care patient survey (Primary Care Quality-Homeless), including the steps taken to systematically incorporate perspectives of homeless patients and experts in their care throughout the survey design process.
This presentation is directed to leaders in development of health care programs for vulnerable/disadvantaged populations, researchers and evaluators for health care programs, and researchers interested in use of qualitative methods and psychometric methodology in the development of population-specific surveys.
