NAPICU Conference Award Opportunities 2018

NEW for 2018:

The theme of the NAPICU conference this year is Quality Improvement (QI) and consequently the conference will have QI projects of the year.  QI is ensuring health care is safe, effective, patient-centred, timely, efficient and equitable.  The project should be evidence based and should include the three core components of QI:

  • Systematic way to tackle complex problems
  • Always evolving and learning
  • Engaging people at all levels to achieve the improvement you’re looking for

The submissions for the QI projects of the year should include a description of project, discuss the evidence base and include the 3 core components of QI.  For guidelines to submit a QI Project of the Year Abstract, click here.
