The Wake Forest Office of Graduate Medical Education and the Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) are pleased to announce the 3rd Annual Quality Improvement Showcase on Thursday, May 3, 2018 from 2:30 pm – 5:00 pm in the Commons Conference Rooms (Nutrition Building, G Floor).
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 oral presentations of four top-ranking trainee projects, a poster session of all submitted projects, and awards for outstanding trainee projects.
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).
