2016 Quality and Safety Forum: Save the Date!
The 2016 New England Neonatology Quality and Safety Forum will be held Thursday, May 12, 2016, from 11am to 7pm at the Massachusetts Medical Society in Waltham, MA. This annual conference strives to gather our regional neonatal community to celebrate and support ongoing work in quality improvement and patient safety in newborn care. The keynote speaker for this year's event is Scott Berns, MD MPH FAAP, the President and CEO of NICHQ (National Institute for Children's Health Quality). Scott is a pediatric emergency room physician with extensive regional and national experience in advocacy, public policy, and quality and safety, with past roles including Senior Vice President and Deputy Medical Officer at the March of Dimes and White House Fellow. His talk will be titled "Improving Newborn Health through Quality, Safety, and Performance Improvement".
In addition to the keynote address, the conference will feature plenary presentations, interactive workshops, and a poster fair and reception to close the day. We encourage you to share your work through a presentation or poster on a quality or safety project at your institution. Abstracts will be due April 11. The poster fair showcasing the projects is always the highlight of the day.
