This document is an adaptation of Partnership Defined Quality: a tool book for community and health provider collaboration for quality improvement, for use with youth, ages 15-24 and health providers to improve youth access to quality health services. The information and ideas for this manual came from the innovations of colleagues in our field offices as they implemented the
PDQ process. Save the Children staff modified several sections of the PDQ manual so that it would be more user friendly for practitioners working specifically with youth. Although many examples refer to PDQ-Y, some of the issues and success stories presented in the original PDQ manual still are applicable to PDQ-Y, so some have remained. Most of the examples relate to health care improvement, but may be modified for use in other sectors.
