Summary of "Paediatric Endoscopy Global Rating Scale: Development of a Quality Improvement Tool and Results of a National Pilot."

The endoscopy Global Rating Scale (GRS) is a web-based self-assessment quality improvement (QI) tool that provides a framework for service improvement. Widespread use of the GRS in adult endoscopy services in the United Kingdom (UK) has led to a demonstrable improvement in quality. The adult GRS is not directly applicable to paediatric endoscopy services. The objective of this study is to develop and pilot a paediatric endoscopy Global Rating Scale (P-GRS) as a QI tool.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A scale comprising 18 symptom constructs chosen to represent relatively independent dimensions of manifest psychopathology. The initial intended use was to provide more efficient assessment of treatment response in clinical psychopharmacology research; however, the scale was readily adapted to other uses.
