Crossing the Trauma Quality Chasm
General, plastic, thoracic, vascular, cardiothoracic, abdominal transplantation and surgical oncology physicians, residents, fellows and medical students need to be regularly updated on novel therapies, as well as advances in surgical care and clinical practices that will aid them in treating a variety of surgical procedures to increase the patient care experience and improve practice efficiency.
Physicians, medical students, fellows, and residents.
At the conclusion of the session, the participants should be able to:
Discuss the six aims of quality improvement as described by the Institute of Medicine: patient-centered, safe, effective, timely, efficient, and equitable.
Describe the three categories of clinical quality metrics: structure, process, and outcome measures.
Recognize how quality measures may confound interventions designed to improve quality, thus making the measures themselves ineffective or counterproductive to quality improvement.
