TQIP Annual Conference

Call for Abstracts

The 2024 TQIP Annual Conference Call for Abstracts is now open! All abstracts received will be reviewed and considered for poster presentation during the TQIP Annual Conference, November 12-14 in Denver, CO. We may select some abstracts for development as case studies or oral presentations during the conference. All abstracts chosen for poster or oral presentation are expected to be presented in-person, on-site in Denver.

Determinations will be made based on subject matter, strength of PI process including loop closure, and the use and strength of data. Those who had posters and presentations last year are encouraged to resubmit with additional outcome data or loop closure.

This is your chance to share with other TQIP centers all the interesting initiatives you have put in place at your hospital. We want to know what internal performance improvement efforts you have embarked on and how you have been using TQIP in your center. Your abstract should answer the following questions:

  • What is the problem or challenge you identified?
  • Describe the intervention you developed or change you implemented to address the problem.
  • How did you measure the effects of the change?
  • How did you sustain the change?

You may submit abstracts on any QI topic, but we are specifically calling for abstracts on the following topics:

  • Change Management
  • Communication (New!)
  • Equity (New!)
  • Geriatrics
  • Hemorrhage Control
  • High Value Care (New!)
  • Imaging/Interventional Radiology
  • Injury Prevention
  • Neurotrauma (TBI/STI)
  • Orthopaedic Trauma Care
  • Pediatrics
  • Performance Improvement
  • Registry and Data Validation
  • Rural Trauma Care
  • Trauma Systems/Collaboratives
  • Trauma Verification
  • Trauma Survivorship

Enhancing Quality through Communicationis the theme of the 2024 TQIP Annual Conference. The conference program will examine the ways teams communicate with their patients and others as well as explore how increasing the effectiveness of this communication can enhance the quality of care delivered. You are encouraged to use “communication” as a submission topic to share your institution’s initiatives related to this year’s theme.
