Program Description: 

The field of pediatric urology is rapidly moving towards evidence-based guideline and clinical quality benchmarks, though few exist at this time.  There remains wide variability on outcomes reporting and clinical practice patterns on a local, regional and national scale.  We plan to address this variability with weekly educational material designed to ensure quality care for patients with pediatric urologic conditions.  To do this, we will utilize a combination of available national standards in conjunction with departmentally maintained quality databases, institutional quality metrics and ongoing review of current literature to identify areas of variability and provide targeted educational activities to address these issues.  This will provide pediatric urology providers strategies for high quality care using the best available evidence.
