The Nutrition Checklist & Surgical Outcomes

(1 comment)

This summer we began a study designed to examine the impact of the Strong for Surgery Nutrition Checklist on surgical outcomes. To do this, we're looking at  two Washington State hospital datasets: the Surgical Care and Outcomes Assessment Program (SCOAP) will provide information about procedures, and the Comprehensive Hospital Abstract Reporting System (CHARS) will give further insight into inpatient hospital admissions and discharge information. By linking these two sources, we can get a better picture of how use of the Nutrition Checklist has influenced how well patients do after surgery. 

We believe the Strong for Surgery Nutrition Checklist has helped improve care and outcomes in hospitals that have implemented it around the Northwest since the program started in 2012. Our hope is that this study will provide strong data to support further use and adoption of the checklist in the Northwest and beyond! We'll continue to share updates about this work through this blog, Twitter, and Facebook. Follow us for more great things to come!
