Strategies to Launch a Successful Quality Improvement Project

This engaging workshop is ideal for neonatal fellows, NNPs, or nurses in training who are planning their capstone projects. Is it also essential for early career neonatologists and unit leaders who are interested in integrating robust quality improvement methods at their center. All professionals, particularly those who are part of newly forming multidisciplinary teams are encouraged to attend and enrich the learning environment and dialogue.

We are delighted to offer this program developed in partnership with the AAP and TECAN leadership.
