The 23rd Annual National Forum on Quality Improvement in Healthcare is coming up. This is a conference put on by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI). It’s held this year in Orlando, Florida on December 4th-7th. In general, non-clinical conferences are a great way to expose yourself to some of the trends and issues in the non-clinical world. In addition to interesting and timely topics, the IHI conference is a great way to network with healthcare executives and others focused on the mission of improving healthcare delivery.
If you’re not able to attend this conference, take a look at the website for the Institute for Healthcare Improvement. In addition to webinars, there are regional seminars and forums. There is also a Fellowship Program open to mid-career healthcare professionals. Fellows spend a year at the IHI home office in Cambridge, MA and have a unique opportunity to learn and network from some of the leading professionals in healthcare quality.
