Chair's Message

Kyle Knierim, MD, 2019 Conference Chair

Are you looking to improve your quality outcomes? New ways to address social determinants of health? Successful programs to help patients manage their health? Strategies for engaging your team in improvement? Ideas to improve care coordination and save money? The Conference on Practice and Quality Improvement gives you the opportunity to learn from peers who have transformed their clinical practices and residency programs and to share your knowledge and experience.

We invite you to share your strategies and ideas, research and experiments, successes and failures that will improve the practice of family medicine. 

The Conference on Practice and Quality Improvement provides a forum for sharing your successes and learning from colleagues as we all develop strategies to demonstrate quality of care and cost-effectiveness to payers. Conference attendees will be able to network with other primary care practice teams from residency programs, private practices, and public safety net clinics.

On behalf of my colleagues on the conference steering committee, we look forward to reviewing your submissions.
