- •In this first description of a CQM in Rectal Cancer, we found that CQM has the potential to be a useful metric of quality care. Achieving CQM is associated with improved overall survival. The most likely reason for failing to reach CQM is inadequate nodal assessment. As surgeons continue to strive to improve quality of care such metrics may prove to be a relevant measure of optimal care.
