Anatomic Pathology's Quality Journey

PACE credits are no longer available for webinars more than 6 months old.

Overview

A series of news stories and headlines contributed to increased interest by the administration at Moffitt Cancer Center to improve diagnostic accuracy. The lab has taken a leadership role and pathologists have been engaged to identify opportunities to improve quality in ways that lead to better diagnostic accuracy and contribute to improved patient care. Among the quality initiatives underway at Moffitt Cancer Center a project to improve concordance in the diagnoses of surgical pathologists on staff. As part of this effort, there is also engagement with pathology groups at community hospitals associated with, and referring patients to Moffitt. This presentation will look at the challenges of creating a system to better assess the quality and consistency of diagnoses produced by individual pathologists, the goals being to improve the processes in anatomic pathology so that patient safety is enhanced, and improved diagnostic accuracy contributes to better patient outcomes.
