Cirrhosis Care Alberta

Presenter: Dr. Puneeta Tandon

Description: Cirrhosis Care Alberta (CCAB) is a 3-year multi-component system-wide quality improvement program which aims to improve quality of care, reduce acute care utilization and meet the needs of both patients and providers throughout Alberta. Instead of addressing just a single contributor to acute care utilization, this ambitious intervention will be the first in the world to bring together care providers across the province to tackle complex multilevel problems with a multilevel solution. Our intervention includes implementation of our standardized integrated strategy for delivering evidence-based best practices under real-world conditions to address the key determinants of hospital readmission and length of stay (LOS) in patients admitted with cirrhosis.

Land Acknowledgment

The Alberta SPOR SUPPORT Unit operates on and acknowledges the lands that are the traditional and ancestral territory of many peoples, presently subject to Treaties 6, 7, and 8. Namely: the Blackfoot Confederacy – Kainai, Piikani, and Siksika – the Cree, Dene, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, Stoney Nakoda, and the Tsuu T’ina Nation and the Métis People of Alberta. This includes the Métis Settlements and the Métis Nation of Alberta. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit who have lived in and cared for these lands for generations. We make this acknowledgment as a reaffirmation of our shared commitment towards reconciliation, and as part of AbSPORU’s mandate towards fostering health system transformation.
