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. Dr. Tremain has championed quality and safety efforts for the last 27 years in various physician leadership roles. During this hour, he will dispel the myths of engagement and provide rules to follow to engage physicians in quality efforts with the hopes of bending the quality curve.
