Understand and embrace the quality measures that are used in cancer care to provide the highest level of care to your patients. You’ll review case examples to learn how the implementation of cancer quality measures impacts patient outcomes, clinical practice, and reimbursement and take away ideas for quality improvement in your own work setting.

  2. Discuss historical efforts that propelled the healthcare quality movement and identify notable contributors to the development of quality improvement systems in use today.
  3. Describe the meaning of quality cancer care, the current elements of such care, and the role that nursing has played in developing quality measurement systems.
  4. Discuss current economic implications for quality cancer care.
  5. Facilitate discussions within their practice setting regarding quality improvement interventions to enhance quality cancer care.
