On May 25, 2016, the Weill Department of Medicine (WDOM) hosted the third Quality Improvement and Patient Safety (QIPS) Poster Session to share results of the many innovative projects conceived and led by WDOM faculty and residents. This year's event showcased five projects internally funded by the WDOM, and also included thirteen independent posters from abstracts selected during an open call for abstracts earlier this year. The QIPS Committee is led by Jennifer I. Lee, M.D., Quality and Patient Safety Officer, and Robert J. Kim, M.D., with administrative assistance from Mary Elizabeth Kelser and Savira Kochhar in the Division of General Internal Medicine.
All posters were judged within these two categories during the event. The panel of interdisciplinary poster judges evaluated all of the posters independently with participation from the WDOM, nursing and hospital leadership in the selection process was greatly appreciated.
"This was an outstanding year," said Dr. Lee. "We are thrilled with the increasing number of projects in quality improvement both from faculty and residents. It is a testament to the growing support from our department's leadership for high impact QI research as a pathway to demonstrate academic achievement."
