The 2016 Quality and Safety in Children’s Health Conference was a great success and there are many individuals to thank for contributing to that success.

  • Thank you to all of the conference attendees for traveling to New Orleans and taking the time to network with colleagues, share ideas and innovations and to advance children's health care.
  • Thank you to all of the conference speakers and poster presenters for sharing their knowledge and expertise.
  • Thank you to the Conference Member Advisory Committees for dedicating their time and knowledge to building the conference program.

The 2016 Quality and Safety in Children's Health Conference brings pediatric quality and safety professionals across the country to one place, one time a year, for the kind of lively conversations and collaborative learning that can spark change in children’s hospitals. Education sessions and posters presented by peer hospitals and industry experts offer you successful practices to improve patient and family engagement, manage the health care of children and foster patient safety.
