The Consensus Decision Making Matrix tool supports achievement of consensus by dividing an identified issue into a set of primary and secondary components. Defining these components increases understanding and identifies what needs to be addressed in order to resolve the issue. This tool provides a structure to discuss the issue and resolve the issue in a way that is acceptable to everyone. Developed by Public Health Foundation (PHF) Senior Quality Advisor Jack Moran and Performance Improvement Expert Amanda McCarty, information gathered in the Consensus Decision Making Matrix tool can be used for decision making and determining next steps. This tool is one of many supplements to the 2012 Public Health Quality Improvement Encyclopedia.
