WAHQ 2019 Annual Conference

Making the Connection: Quality and Safety Science
February 22, 2019

The WAHQ 2019 annual conference, Making the Connection: Quality and Safety Science, on Friday, February 22, 2019, will be motivating and engaging. The need to link quality improvement with the science of safety has never been as critical as in today’s fast-paced health care environment. At this year’s WAHQ conference, you’ll earn CPHQ credits while you:

  • Learn how data from a well-designed deviation management system can enable quick response to failures and  early warning of potential failures.
  • Discover the growing importance of “Human Factors” – how human strengths and limitations play out in the design of systems that involve people, tools, technology, and work environments to ensure safety.
  • Get the latest WHA updates on legislation and other topics affecting quality professionals.
  • Network with your peers for best practices.
Join us for a great day of renewing commitment to quality and safety!
