Postponed to 2021
In light of the latest COVID-19 development and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations, the Hospital Quality Institute (HQI) has cancelled its Annual Conference, scheduled for September 29-30 in Long Beach and November 15-16 in Napa. As a result we have also cancelled this year’s C. Duane Dauner Quality Award which is typically presented at the conference.
HQI is seeking experienced staff to complete a team of quality professionals to share the HQI vision for patient safety and quality that will serve as a vehicle to harmonize the efforts and accomplishments; and in so doing, lead the nation in high quality, safe and reliable health care, resulting in greater value and better health.
