Quality Forum

Register today for Quality Forum 2016!

Quality Forum 2016 will take place February 24 – 26!

The Forum’s main two days of programming (February 25 & 26) will feature 56 sessions of presentations and interactive workshops that will cover a variety of topics related to improving quality across the continuum of care.

Plenary presentations and a debate will bring participants together to learn, to be entertained and to be inspired.

Two special field trips will take participants on an interactive, immersive excursion to get a brand-new perspective on quality improvement.

And on February 24 the event hosts three full-day pre-Forum sessions and Health Talks – a fun evening event where eight speakers tell us their hopes for health care.

Take a look at our program to plan your Quality Forum itinerary.

The Quality Forum has sold out each year, and many sessions and special events have limited capacity, so register early to save your spot.
