Why One Should Attend:

In this workshop, we will discuss the new quality measure revolution, and specifically how components of the Affordable Care Act will impact US medical care delivery.  We will also explore how physicians can get involved in quality improvement, and how to create scholarship (ie peer reviewed papers) through this work. Finally, we will learn about some of the ways that faculty can get involved with GW's Office for Clinical Practice Innovation.  Learning the tools to survive in this new environment will be vital for the 21st century physician.
