About the Quality Improvement Showcase
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).
Sponsored by the Wake Forest Office of Graduate Medical Education and the CTSI, the 2017 Quality Improvement Showcase will feature a keynote address, oral presentations from top-ranking projects, a poster session of all submitted abstracts, and awards for outstanding individual and team projects and for outstanding posters.
The 2017 Quality Improvement Showcase is scheduled for May 16, 2017. Please see the flyer for more information.
The first Quality Improvement Showcase was held in May 2016 and there were 22 abstracts submitted as individual or team projects conducted by Wake Forest residents and fellows. Awards for outstanding projects were given to:
Jeffrey Sachs, MD, Diagnostic Radiology: Reducing Doses of Ionizing Radiation in CT at Wake Forest Baptist Health
