UPDATE: The Michigan Tobacco Quitline has renewed the free program for cancer patients in Michigan through September 2014! The program includes coaching services and Nicotine Replacement Therapy.
MOQC in partnership with Michigan Cancer Consortium is sponsoring a second learning collaborative to change clinical culture and practice patterns to ensure that every patient being treated for cancer who uses tobacco is identified, advised to quit, and offered scientifically sound treatments. 19 sites are currently participating in the collaborative, and we are now seeking participants for cohort #2. A two hour training session is all that is required for your site to get started.

Extravasation Management Resources
Although extravasations are rare, when they do occur they require timely, well-coordinated, high-quality care. When working with practices on safety improvements and QOPI Certification ®, the Michigan Oncology Quality Consortium (MOQC), identified practices with an inconsistent or non-documented extravasation management plan. MOQC established a multi-disciplinary, multi-practice group of experts with the objective of developing a process for the efficient management of an extravasation. The group created four customizable tools for extravasation management.
