Engaging Physicians: How Do We Move the Quality Curve? [Slides]
Successful improvement projects do not occur in a vacuum. Without support and engagement from those affected by the changes, quality improvement projects are like pushing a barrel uphill. Please join us for an interactive webinar featuring Steve Tremain, MD, Cynosure Health Physician Advisor.
