The seventh annual Trauma Quality Improvement Program (TQIP®) Scientific Meeting and Training will take place November 5−7 at the Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate. Register online.
This meeting will bring together trauma medical directors, program managers, coordinators, and registrars from participating and prospective TQIP hospitals. The conference will include multiple presentations from TQIP participants describing how they use TQIP at their hospitals. Breakout sessions centered 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. In addition, dedicated sessions for new TQIP centers will be offered. These sessions will give centers a head start when joining TQIP, so they can immediately begin working on new activities.
Conference topics of note for 2016 include hemorrhage management; spine surgery; TQIP Collaboratives; the latest version of the Brain Trauma Foundation guidelines; and the continued integration of verification, TQIP, and Performance Improvement and Patient Safety. The TQIP Best Practices project team will present on palliative care, followed by a discussion by a panel of experts.
