The purpose of this environmental scan is to support health facilities in identifying and assessing quality improvement (QI) priorities and initiatives to treat children with sepsis.

Tools Description:
Step 1 Environmental Scan - A health facility survey that gathers information regarding (1) the availability of resources and services in the health facility and (2) the readiness of the health facility to provide specific services to a defined minimum standard.
Step 2 Technology Readiness Scan - A short survey that aims to assess a facility’s level of technological preparedness for facilitating standard triage and discharge processes. Ultimately, it determines what technology is needed in order to effectively implement quality improvement intervention.
Step 3a-f Observational Scan - Assesses the quality and safety of care through observation of a health worker in suspected cases of pneumonia, diarrhea, and malaria, in order to assess adherence to standards in the patient care process.
Step 4 Caretaker Satisfaction Questionnaire - Assesses the patient-caretakers’ perspective of the quality of care they/their child received while at the facility.
Step 5 Health Worker Satisfaction Questionnaire - Assesses health workers’ perspectives of the quality of care provided at the facility.
Environmental Scan Feedback Survey - To be completed by data collector(s) and asks questions pertaining to the Scan’s relevancy and usability. The intention of this form is to collect suggestions on what elements of the Scan to add, eliminate, or modify to inform future module updates.
Written Report Of Results Feedback Survey - This survey asks questions pertaining to the presentation and value of the results report.;
