Project: The Development of a Breast Pathology Subspecialty Model: The Saskatoon Experience
Dr. Rees’s quality improvement project focused on developing a subspeciality service model for breast pathologists to improve care for breast cancer patients and reduce inefficiencies. Breast cancer pathology reports provide essential information and contribute to the management plan of breast cancer patients. Poor quality, delayed, or incomplete breast cancer reports impact the quality of patient care. In the past, breast cancer cases have been reported by general pathologists in Saskatoon and the quality and turnaround time of these reports has not been monitored. Dr. Rees began to measure and monitor the quality and turnaround time of breast cancer pathology reports. View her poster to learn more about her project!
