In advance of the American College of Surgeons 2020 Quality and Safety Conference VIRTUAL, August 21–24, the College has posted the Best Practices Case Studies publication for 2020. The conference is being presented free of charge to ensure all can participate despite the economic hardships the COVID-19 has created.
Through the Best Practices Case Studies, hospitals participating in ACS Quality Programs have an opportunity to share their expertise in implementing surgical quality improvement initiatives within their facilities, with the goal of showcasing how participating hospitals have used programmatic data to improve their performance and outcomes. The Best Practices Case Studies publication is intended to allow program participants to learn from the experience of others and develop similar quality improvement projects within their own organizations.
Each Best Practices Case Study from the 10 hospitals highlighted in this year’s publication includes the following:
- Description of the problem addressed
- Context of the quality improvement process
- Planning and development process
- Description of the activity
- Resources needed
- Tips for others
View the 2020 publication, then review Best Practice Case Studies from previous years. And make sure to register for free for the 2020 Quality and Safety Conference, where you can expect much more content on how to improve quality and safety at your institution.
