Implementation of evidence-based recommendations for preventive services in the Veterans Health Administration.
The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) is the largest integrated health care system in the United States. To date, there has been scant research on how VHA adopts clinical preventive services guidelines and how U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommendations factor into the process. In this study, the investigators conducted semistructured interviews with eight VHA leaders to examine how they adopt, disseminate, and measure adherence to recommendations. They concluded that provision of evidence-based clinical preventive services is an important part of VHA's effort to provide high-quality care for Veterans.
