Table 1

Participant perceptions in relation to NSQHS standards. Rows A–D: Staff in ED and 4Gray were invited to complete surveys prior to commencement of MEER sessions (=Baseline) and at three time points during the course of the intervention (ie, at 2.5 months, 5 months and 10 months). The only responses included in this analysis were those where the participant had responded to the Baseline survey and at least one other survey (n=31), ensuring the two response samples were matched. The rating nominated by these participants in the last survey they completed was used to calculate the Last response value. Row E: The values reflect the proportion of respondents in the final survey (at 10 months) that nominated a rating of either improved a lot or improved a bit (n=16). Rows F–G: The proportion of nodes in the map for each standard where the nominated consensus rating was above-average. Results were calculated separately for the ED and 4Gray assessments and then combined to calculate the overall value.
