Patient Safety Week and QIPS Day 2023

The New Year is upon us! Last year we introduced a new QIPS Day format that included excellent platform presentations, as before, and added a new poster session. This allowed us to engage with more project teams and departments than ever before. Following on with that theme, this year we are joining with Erlanger’s celebration of Patient Safety Week (Mar 13-17) as the Kick-off event! We are again featuring selected submissions in a panel-judged platform session as well as a publicly-visible poster session. However, this year we will invite submissions from throughout Erlanger Health System, inclusive of our very successful academic departments. Throughout the week, other offerings will include learning sessions, workshops, and Q&A opportunities featuring experts in patient safety and quality. We are excited to bring together the vast talent of our UTCOM and Erlanger community to inspire, be inspired, and to spotlight the many great things we are doing to better serve our region.  See you March 13!
