Plan, Do, Study, Act Logbook

Learning from experience

PDSA cycles can be used to try-out a change in behaviour and assess its impact. Every time you finish a PDSA cycle you start a new one to try to improve on what you have done in the previous cycle. In this way it becomes a process of continuous learning and improvement. Use this PDSA Log Book when you want to try something new to improve decision-making with children or young people.  When you are studying how it went remember that learning from the changes that don’t go well are often even more useful than the changes that work.

This PDSA Log Book is adapted from the Evidence Based Practice Unit (EBPU): We would like to thank them for their support with this project. EBPU is part of University College London and the Anna Freud Centre.
