The Wake Forest Office of Graduate Medical Education and the Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) are pleased to announce the 4th Annual Quality Improvement Showcase on Tuesday, May 14, 2019 from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm in the Commons Conference Rooms (Nutrition Building, G floor) and Babcock Auditorium (Hanes Building, E floor.)
A poster session featuring quality improvement projects will be open from 10:00 am – 11:30 am in the Commons Conference Rooms. Then join us for a Networking Reception from 11:30 am – 12:00 pm in the Babcock Auditorium, followed by oral
presentations from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm by the top three quality improvement projects.
The Quality Improvement Showcase is a forum to highlight outstanding quality improvement projects designed and implemented by Medical Center trainees, including residents, fellows, medical students, and graduate students, or early career faculty, as either individual or team efforts. The Showcase will include a poster session of all submitted projects, oral presentations from the top-ranking trainee projects, and awards for the Quality Improvement Project of the Year.
Quality improvement is a critical component of the learning healthcare system which “aligns science and informatics, patient-clinician partnerships, incentives, and a culture of continuous improvement to produce the best care at lower cost.” (Institute of Medicine, 2012).
