Our health system's shift from a fee-for-service to a value based repayment models has placed considerable emphasis on the quality of health care. However, patients may vary in their perceptions of quality and their views may conflict with an organization’s conception of high quality.

In this context, quality improvement aims to identify tangible, measurable change and improvement in health care. Taken together, it becomes essential that health care providers and health systems think critically about the subjective nature of quality. How should we define quality and for whom? How can we balance the needs of individual patients and health care systems at large?

Sponsored by the UNC Center for Bioethics and the UNC Hospital Ethics Committee, Clinical Ethics Grand Rounds offers an innovative and interactive forum for engaging with ethical, legal, and policy issues of particular salience to patient care within the hospital. There are no commercial support or conflicts of interest to report.
