Share Improvement Projects at the Summer Institutes on Quality Improvement

The Summer Institutes on Quality Improvement is accepting abstracts until March 4, 2013. Clinicians, educators, researchers, nurses, physicians, pharmacists, managers, students, and all health professionals are invited to submit an abstract.

The Summer Institutes on Evidence-Based Quality Improvement are held at the Grand Hyatt Riverwalk Hotel in San Antonio, TX and consists of:

·         Improvement Science Summit – July 9-10
·         Specialty Pre Conferences – July 10
o   Educators' EBP Workshop®
o   TeamSTEPPS® Fundamentals Workshop   
o   Essential Elements: An Introduction to Evidence-Based Practice 
·         Summer Institute on Evidence-Based Practice – July 11-13
National and international experts in evidence-based practice (EBP) will share information related to improving healthcare and patient safety through scientifically proven best practices. Based on the success at last year’s conference, the Summer Institutes on Quality Improvement will provide the opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to attend a special student program in conjunction with the conference. 

“Reaching out to students is the next step in preparing our workforce; by educating students upstream on the principles of evidence-based quality improvement, we assure a future of excellent healthcare,” said ACE Director (and INQRI grantee) Kathleen R. Stevens, RN, EdD, ANEF, FAAN, professor in the School of Nursing’s Department of Health Restoration and Care Systems Management. “They are our future healthcare providers and providing them with the tools to incorporate research evidence into clinical care is critical in improving patient care and safety on a continuing basis.”
