ISQua Virtual Conference on Patient Safety - Keynote Speaker: Dr. Stephen Muething

PIPSQC is pleased to share that Dr. Stephen Muething will be a Keynote Speaker at the upcoming ISQua Virtual Conference on Patient Safety on September 1st, 2020.

Dr. Muething's Keynote, "Improving Faster Together: The Children's Hospitals Story across North America," will describe how nearly 150 children's hospitals across the US and Canada committed together to eliminate serious harm for patients and staff across all of their organizations. They adopted common metrics, share data monthly, use quality improvement to identify statistically significant best practices and then standardize across the network.
