Quality Forum Brochure and Event Details (Updated 4/21/16)


The key to healthcare success is for individuals and organizations within a community to recognize the need and value in working together to solve problems, establish communication channels and implement protocols and standards in the delivery of care. The Quality Forum is an opportunity for all vested partners to learn from and share with one another.

Our focus this year was on improving care within our communities and within/across care settings (long term, acute, post-acute and ambulatory). Presentations showcased examples highlighting collaborative efforts to improve health outcomes and care, engage consumers and their families and reduce costs.

Continuing Education (CE)

CE credits were awarded through Iowa Western Community College Board of Nursing approved provider #6 for up to 5.7 peer reviewed nursing education credit hours.

Overall Purpose: Improve the quality of care provided to Nebraska residents. Healthcare professionals will share best practices and lessons learned.

Objective 1: Identify skills, resources and best practices that can be applied within your healthcare setting to improve care at the patient and provider levels.

Objective 2: Demonstrate ways to implement change in your healthcare setting resulting in enhanced quality improvement and patient outcomes.
