PLQI in Action: Accomplishments made through PLQI Training
Dr. Kelly Mayson’s success in achieving a reduction in the incidence of anemia in gynaecology oncology and radical cystectomy patients presenting for major abdominal surgery was due to a significant increase in the referrals to the Perioperative Blood Management Program (PBMP) and the treatment of iron deficiency anemia. The PLQI initiative enabled Dr. Mayson to lead a multidisciplinary working group physicians from multiple specialties and hospital staff to support the quality improvement work. PLQI project team have provided complex data analysis and technical support to consolidate and analyze large datasets to inform decision making. Dr. Mayson completed a rapid-fire presentation on this work at the BCPSQC Quality Forum in February 2019: https://ourvancouvermsa.ca/2018/10/17/excellent-results-coming-in-for-project-funded-jointly-by-vpsa-facility-engagement-and-physician-led-quality-improvement-initiatives/
