July 9-10, 2013
2013 Theme - Transformation through Research



This unique specialty research methods conference builds the science foundation for improving healthcare. Experience a full immersion in the latest advances in healthcare improvement research at the 4th Annual Improvement Science Summit.

The Improvement Science Summit is the official conference of the Improvement Science Research Network (ISRN). Philosophically aligned with the NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) program, the goals of the ISRN are to accelerate improvement by conducting interprofessional landmark multi-site studies and to enhance translation of research findings into healthcare.

Transforming healthcare through quality improvement and patient safety initiatives is a national priority. Join us for this innovative 1 ½ day conference focused on advancing healthcare improvement.

Audience: Researchers who seek to conduct improvement studies in a national research network, quality improvement and patient safety professionals, academic scientists and educators, magnet coordinators responsible for conducting research, quality improvement specialists, patient safety officers, hospital administrators, healthcare program evaluators, academic-practice partners in translational science, change champions, and clinicians across various disciplines who evaluate impact of change.

 Evaluating Complex Quality Improvement Studies:
 Challenges, Solutions, and Practical Guidance
 
It is difficult to validate that an improvement change really
 does improve care and outcomes. When the change is a
 complex quality and safety improvement (CQSI), involving 
 many changes, the challenge is greater for researchers and
 improvers. This presentation gives examples of different
 CQSI changes in one unit, across a hospital, and of
 large scale programs and the research methods used in
 studies to evaluate them.

 researcher and the practicing clinician. This presentation
 will center on the importance of this partnership in conducting
 improvement research and the mutual benefits that arise
 from working in an academic-practice partnership.

 relationship to  successfully and safely change practice to
 improve care and outcomes.

The 2013 Educators´ EBP Workshop® emphasizes patient safety and quality improvement trends that should influence preparation of students for today's healthcare systems.

This acclaimed workshop for educators examines teaching-learning strategies, competencies, and interdisciplinary efforts in evidence-based quality and patient safety education. The workshop explores EBP resources, trends, and issues related to preparation of the workforce to be a vital part of healthcare improvement.

National leaders discuss powerful programs that are changing clinical care and rapidly becoming national standards. Discussions will include implications of new trends for education, essential EBP competencies and teaching strategies, revision of basic and graduate curricula and staff development courses, and new online educational resources.

Audience: All educators who wish to transform their education programs.


TeamSTEPPS® Fundamentals Workshop   

Download Program - PDF


Download Program Postcard - PDF

This workshop provides an introduction of the standardized federal program for healthcare team training, Team Strategies and Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety (TeamSTEPPS®), which optimizes team performance, resolving the communication breakdowns that are major contributors to sentinel events.

The evidence-based TeamSTEPPS® system advances quality, safety, and efficiency of patient care by improving communications and other teamwork skills among healthcare professionals. As part of the National Implementation of TeamSTEPPS®, the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) have partnered to build a national support network to move this effective system into healthcare agencies and professional education.

Local TeamSTEPPS® Master Trainers lead this interactive workshop and move beyond the essentials of teamwork to enable participants to develop actionable plans for integrating teamwork into practice in their own organization.

Audience: Health Professionals and Educators who wish to improve patient safety through interprofessional teamwork.

2013 Theme - From Knowing to Doing
"Knowing is not enough; we must apply. 
Willing is not enough; we must do."
- Goethe


In its 12th year, this Institute builds capacity for healthcare providers to actively shape the future of quality and safety in healthcare through translating evidence into practice. Join frontline leaders, midlevel managers, top directors, educators, and scientists from multiple disciplines to share information on informing improvement with evidence, employing improvement strategies, and leading improvement at every level. Because frontline and evidence are powerful drivers in building quality and safety, we look at ‘what it takes’ to move healthcare to a high level of quality and safety. In each discussion, effective strategies are underscored with evidence. Take home expert advice on cutting edge approaches that leverage evidence, organizational climate, and clinician vitality. This all-new conference explores best approaches to accelerate change and adoption by increasing your "Knowing Doing" knowledge, with actionable information.

Audience: Clinicians, nurses, physicians, advanced practice nurses, pharmacists, librarians, all health professionals who wish to use evidence in practice, researchers who develop healthcare science in various disciplines, educators who prepare health professionals including nurses, physicians, pharmacists, dentists, and all health clinicians for implementing quality care, and administrators and managers who shape healthcare services through improvement innovation.
