Description: What is the Quality Improvement Toolkit: Colorectal Cancer Care? The Toolkit is the second in a new series of web-based resource guides being developed for quality improvement professionals trying to improve care for a number of high-priority conditions. The Toolkit is available on the VA Intranet: https://vaww.visn11.portal.va.gov/sites/Indianapolis/verc/occ/Pages/ toolkit_homepage.aspx The CRC Toolkit offers technical, organizational, and clinical innovations (Tools) that may help your facility improve your performance on national VA quality metrics. Every Tool included has been carefully matched to one or more relevant OQP quality indicators or monitors. This makes it easy for you to identify the particular Tools that may help you improve performance on specific metrics. Who should attend the LiveMeeting? Clinicians and other staff involved in diagnosis and treatment of CRC (e.g., leadership and staff from oncology, pathology, radiation oncology, palliative care, primary care), VISN- and medical-center staff involved in quality management and systems redesign, VISN and medical center leadership, and EPRP coordinators. Please share this call and LiveMeeting information with VACO, VISN, and VAMC staff you think will be interested, including: VISN and medical center leadership; Field Advisory Committees; medical center department chiefs; quality management, systems redesign, and patient safety staff; and others involved in diagnosis and treatment of colorectal cancer patients.
