Latest News WVSUMC QA Committee and PSQua Partner for 2nd Twin Event: FDAR and CPD

The QA Committee again partnered with the Philippine Society for Quality in Health Care in conducting the TWIN Seminar Workshop on Focus Data Action Response (FDAR), and the Clinical Pathways Development (CPD) held at the Sarabia Manor Hotel last September 6 to 9, 2011.

Again, the main Speakers and Coordinators of the Seminar workshops were Dr. Ricardo Costes, a past President of the PSQua and a veteran lecturer in many PSQua courses, and Mr. Edgar Edralin, the training officer of PSQua.

As it has been since the First Twin Event last year (2010) also through the initiative of the QA Committee, the seminars were offered to various hospital in Iloilo and the rest of Western Visayas, specifically Negros Occidental.

As expected there was tremendous response from various hospitals in the Region with many coming from Negros Occidental and even Dumaguete City. The FDAR seminar was fully booked up to 40 participants, seven of whom were nurses of the WVSU Medical Center.

On the other hand, nine of our Medical staff, residents and a few consultants together with sixty other medical and nursing staff from various hospitals, overflowed in attending the last two-day seminar writeshop on Clinical Pathways Development.

Needless to say, the feedback from the participants were favorable, many of whom expressed the hope that more such seminars in QA be conducted in the future.

Our response is simply a positive one, and one that will continue to heed the demands of training in Quality Assurance activities as not just the WVSU Medical Center, but all hospitals in the region gear up to meet the greater expectations in quality service not just by PHIC, but by and large by the community itself!

We will continue to partner with PSQua, as the WVSU Medical Center QA Committee pledges to constantly bring to our staff, and to the West Visayas hospitals the appropriate training that are required in pursuit of the culture of continuing quality improvement in the hospital.
