Comprehensive Stroke Center

For those who haven’t heard, we learned on Thursday that we’ve received Joint Commission certification as a  comprehensive stroke center.

The residents deserve a lot of the credit for this. Even though we have an army of people working on the systems aspects of our certifications (here’s an article that describes a little bit about the intensity of the process), it is you who provide so much of the in-the-trenches care that matters most to our patients and families.

Because practice-based learning and improvement and systems-based practice are two of the ACGME core competencies, and because resident participation in quality improvement is a major focus of the ACGME right now, I will over the course of the year try to provide more opportunities for you to be involved in our ongoing work. There’s still much to do!
