DESCRIPTION
We all know quality and safety are important in pediatric practice. But how do we choose something to improve? What are best strategies for designing, executing and evaluating a QI project? And how can we effectively communicate our findings with others? Quality and safety pioneer, Dr Rick McClead, visits the studio as we explore answers to these questions and more. We hope you can join us!
