Highlights from the 2020 Network Council Meeting/QIA Kickoff Meeting
Here are a few highlights from the meeting:
- Areas of Network-wide improvement include reducing bloodstream infections, reducing the use of long-term catheters, increasing home therapy use, increasing kidney transplant waitlist, and the engagement of patients, family members and caregivers in three CMS-identified opportunities (i.e., plan of care, groups, and quality improvement)
- Each facility will be asked to participate in at least one focus area – your unit’s QIA focus is mentioned above.
- There are tasks outside of formal Quality Improvement Activities that facilities may be asked to complete! One example is the requirement of each dialysis facility to attend the Annual Grievance Notification webinar (Register Here)
