The UNC Institute for Healthcare Quality Improvement (IHQI) featured six clinical improvement projects at it's 3rd annual Improvement Scholars’ Symposium on Thu, May 11.

The IHQI Improvement Scholars’ Program (previously the IHQI Seed Grant Program) develops School of Medicine faculty and UNC Health Care System physicians to lead health care improvement. Improvement Scholars submit proposals to improve clinical effectiveness and patient safety by implementing proven and/or expert-recommended strategies and approaches. Proposals are reviewed by a committee of IHQI Faculty and UNC Health Care System improvement leaders. Selected project leaders and their teams are mentored by IHQI throughout the life cycle of their improvement project.

The 2016-2017 Improvement Scholars shared results-to-date at the IHQI Symposium on May 11.
