Coalition for Quality in Geriatric Surgery

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) was awarded a four-year grant from the John A. Hartford Foundation (JAHF) to develop and implement a Geriatric Surgery Verification and Quality Improvement Program (referred to here as “the Program”). This broad-reaching quality program will be designed to systematically improve care and outcomes for the older adult surgical patient. The grant period began on July 1, 2015 and a set of stakeholders (the Coalition for Quality in Geriatric Surgery) has been convened during the initial stages of developing the program.

PFCCpartners is proud to actively participate in this coalition to bring the voice of the patient and family caregivers into the discussion and design.   Coalition for Quality in Geriatric Surgery
