Hear What Attendees Have to Say

“This was an incredible learning experience and could easily be adopted by any department.”

“If you want to learn about Quality Improvement - IDEAS is the right choice.”

“Excellent program, practical intro to QI, and great speakers.”

“The program provided the tools that will inform solutions to clinical issues or challenges.”

“In the past we have been quick to implement solutions that didn't work - because we never fully explored the root of the problem. After IDEAS I'm eager to put these tools to work to make a difference for patient care.”

“I really enjoyed the sessions, thank you!”

“I liked the approach of diving right into the mini-lecture and group activities before going deep into theory on process and tools. I thought this approach generated more engagement and group discussion.”

“Something I had perceived as boring really came to life at the IDEAS Program. I want to learn more, and am interested in the 9-Day IDEAS program”
