QIPSF 2017 brought together C-QuIPS members, IDEAS alumni and members of the broader Quality Improvement and Patient Safety community who are actively leading or supporting QI and patient safety practice and academic work.

This year, we were thrilled to have invited Dr. Bryan Sexton, (Director, Duke University Health System Patient Safety Center) as our keynote speaker at the Forum – he spoke about resilience in healthcare.  The day closed with a presentation by Dr. Kaveh Shojania, C-QuIPS Director, and Dr. Tara Kiran, Family Physician and Quality Improvement Director at St. Michaels Hospital.
