​$100 Fellows, Residents, Nurses, Allied Health
$200 All Other Registrants

You will need to choose two concurrent sessions at registration if you are attending the quality conference. (Concurrent sessions will run from 1:15 p.m. - 4 p.m. – you will have the opportunity to attend two different sessions during that time.) Descriptions are below.

Making Sense of Performance Variation: Yours and Theirs
Munish Gupta, MD, MMSc ; Heather Kaplan, MD, MSCE; Joseph Schulman, MD, MS

Measurement is critical to quality improvement, and interpreting data from quality metrics is essential for guiding improvement efforts. In this workshop, we will review several tools for analyzing performance data, including control charts, risk-adjusted comparison charts and funnel plots, and standardized morbidity ratios. These tools will help you understand variation within your NICU, as well as variation between your NICU and other NICUs.  

Don’t Let the Change Manage You
Lori Armstrong, MSN, RN NEA-BC

In our journey toward Zero Harm it takes more than bundle compliance to improve outcomes. Workshop participants will learn the critical role QI leaders play by strengthening their influence over care and navigating change in these turbulent times.

Getting Parents Involved in Quality Improvement
Lelis Vernon, BA

This workshop will focus on incorporating the parental perspective into your QI projects. Learn how this is already being done and why including these key stakeholders will add value to your future studies. NICU parents' involvement adds greater transparency, aligning with transformative changes occurring throughout healthcare.
