“Evaluation Designs for Quality Improvement Practice and Research

“Evaluation Designs for Quality Improvement Practice and Research”
Location: Weston House Lecture Theatre Great Ormond Street
Date: Monday April 20th , 2015
Our plans for the workshop on “Evaluation Designs for Quality Improvement Practice and Research”
are moving ahead well. We have an exciting line up of speakers and panelists and a diverse group of
implementers and researchers who have already signed up for the meeting. The meeting will be a
satellite event of the International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare, a meeting co-sponsored
by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement and British Medical Journal, that will be held in London
from April 21st to 24th . The timing of HSG Working Group event will also allow for attendance at the
Research and Science Symposium that will be held at the Forum on April 21st. While this highly
interactive meeting will focus on designs and practical challenges for evaluation in resource limited
settings, the lessons are applicable to all environments. The meeting attendance is free of charge and
will be limited to 100 people who have pre-registered. Please email directly to Mark Bradshaw at IHI if
you are planning to attend. The detailed agenda and speakers will be published in early March.
