Abstract

Pelvic floor disorders affect millions of women nationwide and many women access the healthcare system to seek treatment for these disorders to improve their quality of life. Quality improvement is defined as the combined and unceasing efforts of healthcare professionals, patients and their families, researchers, payers, planners and educators to make the changes that will lead to better patient outcomes, professional development and health care delivery. The problems related to transvaginal mesh emphasize the importance of quality and safety in the field of female pelvic medicine and reconstruction. In the future, medical societies will likely increase the production of treatment guidelines for disease processes and certifying medical boards will continue to strengthen the certification and maintenance of certifications processes in order to maintain competency and improve the quality and safety of medical care delivered.
