Healthcare Quality Week 2016


Taking place October 16-22, Healthcare Quality Week is the time we dedicate to celebrating the contributions professionals have made in the field and their impact on healthcare! Throughout the week, we bring greater awareness to the Profession of Healthcare Quality and celebrate and acknowledge the work of healthcare quality professionals. We provide you with resources that you can use to help your organization celebrate the profession of healthcare quality as well as events to help you get in the spirit!
