The eighth annual Trauma Quality Improvement Program (TQIP®) Scientific Meeting and Training will take place November 11−13 at the Hilton Chicago. Register online for the meeting at facs.org/tqipmeeting.
This meeting will bring together trauma medical directors, program managers, coordinators, and registrars from participating and prospective TQIP hospitals. The conference will have multiple presentations from TQIP participants highlighting how they are using the program to improve care in their hospitals. Breakout sessions focused on registrar and abstractor concerns, matters that relate to the trauma medical director, and trauma program manager-focused issues will enhance the learning experience and instruct participants about their role on the TQIP team. In addition, dedicated sessions for staff who are new to the TQIP program will take place and may be invaluable to medical centers joining TQIP in the near future.
Conference topics of note for 2017 will include TQIP Collaboratives, Pediatric TQIP, management of bleeding pelvic fractures, and the continued integration of verification, TQIP, and performance improvement and patient safety. The TQIP Best Practices project team will present on adult and pediatric imaging, followed by a discussion by a panel of experts. The keynote address will be given by Lenworth M. Jacobs, Jr., MD, MPH, FACS, Chair, Hartford Consensus Joint Committee to Enhance Survivability from Active Shooter and Intentional Mass Casualty Events.
