Congratulations to Dr. Ahmad Halwani for a five-year award from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for a project entitled “Scaling the SLC Veterans on Anticancer Medications in Community and Rural Environments Support (VA CARES) Program”. The VA CARES program aims to improve the effectiveness, safety, and efficiency of medication management for expensive and high-risk oral cancer medication in VA’s Rocky Mountain Network (VISN 19), which serves an area covering the states of Utah, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Oklahoma and portions of Idaho, Kansas, Nebraska, Nevada and North Dakota. The award aims to provide VA CARES with enhanced informatics tools that support its mission. A mixed-methods research approach will inform implementation strategies and guide the development of quantitative measures to evaluate clinical outcomes.
