The sixth annual Trauma Quality Improvement Program (TQIP®) Scientific Meeting and Training will take place November 15−17, at the Omni Nashville Hotel, TN. Register online for the meeting by October 22.
The meeting will convene trauma medical directors, program managers, abstractors, and registrars from participating and prospective TQIP hospitals. The program will begin with a half-day preconference session on the basics of the TQIP program, intended for new TQIP centers, new staff at existing centers, and participants in need of a TQIP refresher.
At the conference, representatives from trauma centers will lead a number of sessions to highlight how they are using TQIP and convey to attendees the benefits of TQIP participation. Breakout sessions focused on registrar and abstractor concerns, matters that relate to the trauma medical director, and trauma program manager-focused issues will enhance the learning experience and instruct participants about their role on the TQIP team.
Conference topics of note for 2015 will include the integration of Verification, TQIP, and Performance Improvement Programs, as well as Pediatrics. The TQIP project team will present best practice guidelines on care of the orthopaedic patient, followed by a discussion by a panel of experts.
