"We are delighted to be collaborating with the IHI on this Forum to teach the latest quality improvement techniques and methodology to all front-line healthcare professionals responsible for patient care. Doctors, nurses as well as allied health professionals such as pharmacists, laboratory technicians, occupational therapists or paramedics, can all benefit from the IHI faculty's experience," said Professor Michael Richmond, Deputy Chief of Medical, Academic and Research Affairs, Quality and Safety and Chairperson for the IHI ME Forum Planning Group.
"Staff are the most important assets of any healthcare organization and ensuring they have the right understanding and knowledge of how to deliver the best patient care is essential in raising patient care standards across the board," he added.
Doctors and nurses attending this Forum are able to earn up to 16 CME and 13 CNE points respectively, subject to the number of sessions they attend.
