Quality Improvement - Initiatives

The DCPCA Quality Improvement team and the DC Department of Health hosted a DC3C Project Kickoff on December 8th. As we enter the 3rd year of this project, DOH is expanding the focus of this program to encompass comprehensive cancer prevention activities for colorectal cancer, cervical cancer and breast cancer. This project also includes education and tools to increase referrals to tobacco cessation interventions. Participation gives health centers access to detailed quality performance dashboards on all four topic areas, as well as specialized technical assistance, training, and tools from DCPCA, DOH, and the CDC. Clinics will work with DCPCA and DOH to implement evidence-based interventions to improve cancer screening and prevention.
