Quality Month 2016 “Pollinating Improvement” Poster Applications Due July 1
Join other problem-solvers throughout the academic medical center to celebrate the work of process improvement teams across the health system with a poster exhibit in the Towsley Lobby, a highlight of the Quality Month celebration on October 4 and 5.
We invite teams that have completed at least one round of improvement using the Plan-Do-Check-Adjust cycles of improvement to submit an application by July 1 representing their work. Teams that can demonstrate multiple cycles of improvement are especially encouraged to submit an application, highlighting successive experiments.
The theme of “Pollinating Improvements” highlights the importance both of using the experience of others sharing similar problems as the team begins the improvement process and sharing the results of experiments to the advantage of others who may be addressing similar problems in their workplace. This poster session is one way to Pollinate Improvements as well as a way to recognize and celebrate the work of staff who have invested in our success as an organization by improving the work they do every day.
The application process and a template for application to participate are located at the Quality Month website.
