This is a set of slides I put together for a briefing for the Metro Maryland Ostomy Association. It is on the topic of patients being involved with their healthcare and focuses on improving safety and quality to the extent practicable by a patient. I am a member of the Board of MMOA, and had an ileostomy for 13 years, up until just a few months ago when I had "j-pouch" surgery. I worked for the Dept of VA's National Center for Patient Safety from 2000 to 2010, and have been with the AHRQ Center for Quality Improvement and Patient Safety 3 years as of this posting.
