National Recognition for Cancer and Blood Disorders Center


Valley Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Center and research teams have once again received national recognition for initiatives that improve clinical quality and standards. For the second year in a row, the Oncology Research Team’s poster has been selected as one of the top posters for presentation at the Children’s Oncology Group (COG) Annual Meeting. It tied for First Place this year. The poster is called “An Audit a Day Keeps Errors Away,” and highlights a quality improvement project regarding appropriate and accurate documentation on chemotherapy roadmaps. The team will present the poster at COG’s national meetings in Dallas this October.

The Hemophilia Treatment Center (HTC) will also be presenting a poster at the upcoming National Hemophilia Foundation’s annual conference in Orlando, Florida, later this fall. The HTC’s presentation will detail Valley Children’s Annual School Nurses Conference that the team has put on for three years in a row for dozens of school nurses from 29 different school districts.

“These achievements reflect the dedication of our oncology research and hemophilia teams,” said Dr. Vinod Balasa, medical director of the Cancer and Blood Disorders Center. “It is an honor to be able to showcase our work at national and international levels.”
