Summary: The VA Office of Inspector General reviewed the Community Based Outpatient Clinics (CBOCs) and primary care clinics (PCCs) of the Atlanta VA Medical Center.

The review covered the clinical care components of alcohol use disorder and medication management and evaluated if processes were in place for designated women’s health providers to maintain proficiency in women’s health. We also randomly selected the Trinka Davis Veterans Village CBOC, Carrollton, GA, for a site visit during the week of November 18, 2013, to evaluate the environment of care.
