Centers of Excellence
NAFC's National Centers of Excellence: Continence Care program was established to offer consumers seeking solutions to their bladder or bowel control problems and related pelvic floor dysfunction a reliable, trustworthy means of finding an expert. The Centers of Excellence (COE) designation will be based on evidence of training, clinical experience, resources, and patient satisfaction statistics that meet established standards.
The program's objective is to direct higher numbers of consumers to facilities and practitioners who deliver the best outcomes and highest patient satisfaction.
The goal is to establish a bar for aspiration and achievement by others in the field to continuously improve the quality of care delivered to patients, while reducing the costs and hazards of errors by providers, as well as frustration and confusion on the patient's part.
