The Quality COMPAS Companion Book

The Companion book presents an overview of the Quality COMPAS method. It has been revised in 2009. A certain number of changes have been made to this version of the Companion Book, to reflect ways in which the Quality COMPAS has evolved since its launch: several key questions have been rewritten, model phase reports are now available and critical event monitoring is now presented as a separate tool.

The overall structure of the Quality COMPAS has not been altered. Neither has the principle of achieving quality via specific questions or the quality reference framework: the relevance of these fundamental ingredients of the method has been confirmed over time.
