SCW has now received two major grants to support the development of the Collaborative’s infrastructure and inaugural quality improvement initiatives. SCW Director Caprice Greenberg, MD, MPH, has been awarded a 2-year, $200,000 grant from the Wisconsin Partnership Education and Research Committee (PERC) to support the development of the Collaborative’s infrastructure and quality improvement projects in breast and colorectal cancer care across the state. The Wisconsin Partnership program supports community-driven work and recognizes that successful research and interventions depend on engaging communities as partners. SCW’s effort to engage surgeons and hospitals across the state and in particular those in rural areas was a key focus of the grant submission. In addition, Dr. Greenberg is the recent recipient of a $250,000 grant through the University of Wisconsin Department of Surgery’s AAA Quality Fund, also to support the Surgical Collaborative of Wisconsin.
