SOAP-Q

SOAP-Q is a communication tool designed to encourage providers to address health care quality effectively within oral case presentations and in note writing. This summary handout covers the basics of the SOAP-Q approach. 

This video demonstrates a third-year medical student modeling the case presentation in SOAP-Q format and this clinical note demonstrates SOAP-Q in note writing.

In both examples, the student implements strategies to advocate for quality patient careoptimal patient care systems, and safety culture within the context of a patient encounter while maintaining psychological safety in the setting of academic hierarchy.
