ASQ Health Care Conference Seeks Presenters

Global health care quality leaders invited to submit proposals

Published: Tuesday, August 3, 2010 - 16:12

(ASQ: Milwaukee) -- Health care organizations from around the globe are invited to share their models of quality improvement at the upcoming 2011 Quality Institute for Healthcare (QIHC) Conference, May 16–18 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh.

“First Do No Harm, Then Make No Waste: Proven Methods and Tools for Safe and Efficient Global Healthcare” is the theme for the event, hosted by American Society for Quality (ASQ).

Dr. Ricardo Leano, QIHC program chair, announces a call for presentation submissions from all health care leaders and quality practitioners—from administrators and managers to clinical directors—who are interested in sharing best practices, successes, and proven techniques with an audience representing many countries and backgrounds. The submission deadline is Monday, Sept. 13.

ASQ is interested in general- and advanced-level content for the conference in either a one-hour presentation or a four-hour workshop format presenting real applications, solutions, and results that show demonstrated economic and/or patient outcome value. Focus areas for the conference will include efficiency, patient and customer satisfaction, patient safety, technology and quality improvement, quality systems and organizational excellence, and building and sustaining a quality culture. Visit ASQ to learn more about these topics and submit your proposal.

ASQ provides resources, training, certification, and networking opportunities to professionals in a diverse range of health care organizations, from hospitals and medical clinics to blood banks, whose objective is to improve quality of care, patient safety and satisfaction, organizational efficiencies, and the bottom line.
