#2. Working Relationship with Transplant Center Staff and/or Home Therapies Staff. Have you planned an educational activity?
#3. Review RCA/PDSA Is your facility making any progress in overcoming your initial Root Cause for low Transplant or Home Modality rates? You will be asked to list two forms of education that you use for your QIA(s). Are they effective? Do you need new or additional materials?
Please discuss QIA progress and patient feedback in QAPI. Best Practice is having a patient present their activities/involvement in the QIA(s) at the beginning of the QAPI meeting - either in person or on the phone.
#5. Submit Monthly Status Report Online by 4/30/2019
Our work in April will be to build on the activities of the past months and work with your patients, family members, care partners, facility staff and others to improve transplant and home therapies rates.
At this point (April), you should be formally tracking your patient education efforts, and trending their interest and feedback regarding Home Therapies and/or Transplant. (Depending which QIA your facility is participating in)
