2nd Annual Unified Quality Improvement Symposium

Wednesday, January 31st, 2018
East Carolina Heart Institute

Please join us for the second annual Unified Quality Improvement Symposium, co-hosted by the Brody School of Medicine REACH Initiative and the Vidant Health Quality Office. The symposium is a showcase of initiatives happening throughout East Carolina University's Health Sciences Campus and Vidant Health related to quality improvement, patient safety, population health, and interprofessional practice.

The goal of the symposium is to provide academic and community physicians, health professionals, health care teams, and residents/fellows and students the opportunity to present their work in systems improvement and practice redesign to an audience of peers and health system leaders.

Submissions will be accepted from all ECU Health Sciences Schools and Vidant Medical Center/ Vidant Health. Additional weight will be given to abstracts that highlight the work of interprofessional teams and those that exemplify how the quality improvement process can impact clinical care and systems based practice. Finally, those that involve students or residents as part of their improvement teams will be prioritized.
