What is Quality Day?
In order to further its mission to provide hope, healing, and the best health care for children and their families, Phoenix Children’s Hospital is planning its first Quality Day. Quality Day strives to engage institutional leaders in quality improvement projects, foster new ideas for future projects, increase staff participation in quality initiatives, and provide a venue for dissemination of outcomes. It provides a platform to celebrate quality improvement successes and learn about creative new project ideas. It is a time to interact with hospital staff – residents and fellows, staff physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals – to learn about completed, on-going, or new projects at Phoenix Children's. It is also a time to share new ideas as PCH staff are well-positioned to identify potential areas for improvement in patient safety, patient satisfaction, and efficiency, as well as recognize potential solutions. To encourage this important work, prizes will be awarded to the best new High-Value Ideas as well as the best completed or on-going quality improvement projects, with a Grand Prize of $1,000.00!
Phoenix Children's Quality Day will be Tuesday, April 24th, 2018 from 7:30 am – 1:00 pm at the Melvin L. Cohen Conference Center. We are honored to have Dr. Steven Brown, Professor of Family and Community Medicine and Program Director of the University of Arizona – Phoenix Family Medicine Residency as a keynote speaker. Additional activities will include a poster display and oral presentations of winners. Box lunches will be served.
To be considered for poster display and prizes, please submit High-Value Ideas and abstracts of completed and on-going projects online:
