Program for Quality Improvement/Patient Safety (QIPS)

Vijay Babu Rayudu Quality & Patient Safety Day


Quality & Patient Safety Day

Students, residents, fellows in the School of Medicine are invited to submit abstracts of quality improvement and patient safety projects for presentation.  Abstracts will be judged by a faculty committee with a few top abstracts selected for oral presentation and the remainder for poster presentation.  Poster presentations will be judged for awards the day of the conference.  Up to 5 clinical vignettes will be accepted for poster presentation on a space-available basis, and should address quality and safety with a specific focus on transitions of care.  Clinical vignette posters will not be judged.

These are the criteria for judging abstracts:
  1. Background.  The background provides a good argument for the need of the QI project and describes the significance of the project relevant to clinical practice.
  2. Methods.  The methods are described in detail and there is evidence of systematic analysis of error and/or approach to improvement.
  3. Data and analysis.  The data analysis plan is appropriate to the purpose of the QI project.  The data are complete and clearly presented in the poster.
  4. Value and conclusions.  The conclusions are appropriate given the results and there is discussion of sustainability and/or application to other institutions.
  5. Limitations.  The limitations of the QI project are discussed.
Please note:
  1. Abstract titles should match the title of the oral/poster presentation and abstracts should be no more than 350 words in length (excluding title and references).
  2. Student presentations should be approved by the faculty mentor in advance.
  3. Student, Resident and Fellow abstracts are due by midnight on Monday, April 9, 2018. No late submissions will be accepted.
  4. Applicants will be notified by email by 4/27/2018 if their presentation is accepted.  Faculty mentors will also be notified.
