The Patient Safety & Quality Poster Competition is organized to encourage hospitals and health care providers to present their original, quality improvement work. All abstracts will be showcased during the Fifth Annual Patient Safety & Quality Summit on June 8, 2022. Winning abstracts will be selected to present during breakout sessions. The purpose of the competition is to stimulate systematic investigation by medical professionals, provide a venue to share innovative and effective educational programs, showcase unique community projects, and encourage networking among medical peers with similar interests.
