• The Cardiovascular Professional SCAI Quality Improvement Toolkit (CVP SCAI-QIT), is an extension of SCAI's successful QIT for cath labs. This tool will provide SCAI Cardiovascular Professionals (CVPs) with a foundation to promote and implement quality improvement processes.

    CVP SCAI-QIT includes four modules: 

     

    Quality Improvement in the Cath Lab: 
    PDF 
    Staff Training and Certification:
    PDF
    NCDR, Performance, Measures, and Benchmarking:
    PDF
    Cath Lab Best Practices:
    PDF

    and two checklists:

    Final Radial Checklist

     

    Femoral Checklist

     

    The toolkit will be continuously updated by a team of expert authors to ensure the latest quality standards are included. The goal of each module is to stimulate thought and generate action from all team members within each cath lab in order to positively affect patient outcomes.
