The 2017 Quality Improvement (QI) Summit set for Saturday, April 8, at the Hilton Columbus at Easton is just weeks away and the last remaining practice opportunities are filling quickly. Two of the four educational tracks are already filled to capacity and there is just one slot open for the hypertension management experience and 14 slots available for the breast & cervical cancer track.
The deadline for team registration is Friday, March 24, so secure your chance now to improve patient care, streamline office efficiencies, and build team camaraderie all while having fun and memorable time doing so!
Additionally, each participating physician will earn American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) Family Certification Performance Improvement activity credit and approximately 24 continuing medical education (CME) credits by taking part in this innovative educational program. Other members of the care team such as physician assistants, nurses, and advanced practice nurses can all claim continuing education credit too.
How the QI Summit Works:
Teams will have the opportunity hear from expert speakers share insight on best practices in screening protocols, up-to-date practice guidelines, and the importance of QI in patient care and population health as a whole. Time is built into the program schedule to allow teams to work together, bond, and be motivationally recharged.
Participants will also utilize online modules that have been custom developed for each of the four clinical topics. By utilizing the module, practices will be able to measure their team engagement, benchmark patient data, select a pathway for care delivery intervention, and re-measure outcome data after a six-month change period. The module will systematically guide participants through a Plan, Do, Study, Act (PDSA) cycle as a method to improve patient care and recognize practice success.
More information on the Summit and each individual track can be found on the OAFP website.
