The Promoting Healthy Development Survey (PHDS) is a parent-completed survey that assesses whether young children (under 4 years) are receiving nationally recommended preventive and developmental services, based on the most recent Bright Futures Guidelines (American Academy of Pediatrics, 2008). The Online PHDS Toolkit provides a set of online tools that allows providers and practices to customize the PHDS to meet their measurement and improvement needs by identifying preferences for the survey content and selecting the types of feedback reports that best meet their quality improvement needs. Providers can also use the Online PHDS as a quality improvement activity to fulfill the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) Maintenance of Certification Part 4 requirement.
Follow the links in the sidebar to learn more About the PHDS, about Using the Online PHDS for Practice Improvement & ABP Maintenance of Certification, or get started with the Online PHDS in your practice by signing up on the Online PHDS Toolkit. We have also provided links to Quality Improvement Resources to support practice and provider-level initiatives.
