Understanding and Improving Quality

Is it safe to get healthcare?? If yes, why do over a quarter of a million people die each year from medical errors? Do patients really understand the risks, how quality is measured and what each patient needs to do to be safe and keep others safe?  Additionally, we will discuss public policy and the likely implications of the mid-term and near-term elections.

Healthcare Beyond our Backyard- An International View of Nursing and Healthcare Delivery

Look around every corner and you will see healthcare innovation. Unexpected providers, automated processes, round the clock, easy-to-access care — in person or online– and less expensive than anything anyone could have imagined.  In this session we will share proven innovative ideas and discuss best practices from around the world.

It is no surprise that the nursing profession is the largest workforce in America. Patients and family members value their service, help, empathy and the care they provide. Healthcare organizations and physicians know that there is a direct correlation quality of care and outcomes. Everyone knows that Nurses are the heart of healthcare. Please join us as we discuss the future of nursing and celebrate their contribution to our community.
