IHQI’s first virtual Improvement Scholars Symposium was held on September 15, 2020, on Zoom. Seven Improvement Scholars presented the results of their quality improvement projects that began last fall, and a virtual breakout room reception followed. Darren DeWalt, IHQI Director, and Laura Brown, IHQI Executive Director, kicked off the program by acknowledging the inspiring work of the scholars and their project supporters. The presentation agenda was as follows:
Zoom participants appreciated the well-prepared presentations that covered a wide variety of topics, and IHQI appreciated the supportive feedback: “What a fantastic symposium today with our IHQI friends and physician quality leaders. Impressive and awesome project work! (The added bonus was the effectiveness of the virtual format.) This was the bright spot of my day.”
Developing and mentoring clinical improvement leaders is IHQI’s mission, and we are delighted to have worked alongside this year’s scholars.
