TICKER Quality Improvement Conference Held

A multidisciplinary team, representing all sub-specialties treating pediatric cardiac surgery patients, met January 23 to review data from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) national database. As a result of the meeting, work groups were formed to address care for common complications.

A regularly scheduled peer review quality improvement conference is one of the structure measures identified by STS as a quality indicator.  The Project TICKER team is gathering feedback to determine the frequency and future topics for this meeting.
