Registration is now open for the Third Annual Conference on Advancing Quality Improvement Science for Children's Healthcare Research to be held on May 3, 2013 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in conjunction with the 2013 Pediatric Academic Societies Annual Meeting. This meeting will serve as a springboard for those seeking to bring new methods to their work on local innovation and improvement and for emerging or established health services researchers to understand state-of the-art techniques in improvement science and related disciplines. Trainees at all levels are particularly encouraged to register (at a discounted fee).
This year's meeting will build on the great success of the two previous conferences and the feedback of almost 300 attendees. Of those (130) who completed the evaluation in 2012, 95% indicated they had increased their competence, and 98% indicated they would like to attend future conferences. Ample time for networking is included, as is a new lunchtime poster session.
Faculty will again represent an all-star cast from pediatrics, the social sciences, and beyond. The keynote speaker will be Lisa Simpson, President and CEO of AcademyHealth. In response to feedback, interactive breakout sessions have been expanded and will include opportunities to learn and practice both introductory and advanced level methods such as:
- Bridging classical statistical methods and QI research
- Developing robust quality measures
- Statistical process control
- Advanced observational analysis methods such as interrupted time series designs
- Cluster-randomized and stepped wedge intervention designs
- Skills for obtaining funding, publishing, and academic advancement in the domain of quality improvement research.
The 2013 Planning Committee consists of APA members Jon Finkelstein, Denise Dougherty, Lawrence Kleinman, David Link, Rita Mangione-Smith, and Judy Shaw, with the active support and involvement of APA staff, and the faculty comprises successful improvement leaders, researchers, and methodologists.
