Annual Quality Congress
Neonatal Care Today and Tomorrow
Join us November 5-8, 2020 in Chicago, IL
Convening a Community Dedicated to Transforming Newborn Care
VON’s Annual Quality Congress convenes more than 1300 healthcare professionals and family partners to examine the biggest questions facing our community of practice and collaborate to accelerate practical improvement in newborn care.
Each year, more than two-thirds of Annual Quality Congress participants share their quality improvement, translational science, and original research during the Improvement Science Expo.
Special events for teams participating in VON collaboratives and learning communities advance peer-to-peer learning, fuel innovation, and inspire action.
The annual Jump Starting Quality workshop guides beginners and more advanced healthcare professionals in QI fundamentals to advance their improvement project.
Our 2020 theme is Neonatal Care Today and Tomorrow. Join us to critically assess neonatal care today and envision how care will evolve in the near and distant future, in the developed world and globally.
Submit a Poster for the Improvement Science Expo
Join us to share your improvement with colleagues around the world and learn how leading VON centers are transforming newborn care for tomorrow by turning their data into action today.
Register to submit your poster by June 15, 2020 (actual poster submissions will be due at a later date).
