Quality and Safety Symposium 2018, Poster Session

Posters from multiple colleges across the University of Iowa, from both sides of the river, were represented at this year’s session. More than 60 posters documenting a wide variety of activities from better handoffs to managing pharmaceuticals more safely and efficiently were on display.

As with years past, the session encourages works in progress to encourage greater participation and inspire collaboration, a key theme within the Quality and Safety Symposium’s mission.

This year’s QSS keynote speaker, Sorrel King, was also in attendance and she graciously offered on behalf of the Josie King Foundation to sponsor the cash awards to this year’s award winners.

Congratulations to session organizer, Dr. Wendy Fiordellisi, and to this year’s winners. A special thank you as well to the three dozen judges who helped make the event possible.
