“QI: Plan. Execute. Publish” is the tagline for the November 23, 2013 conference, jointly sponsored by Albert Einstein College of Medicine (@EinsteinMed) and the CIR Policy and Education Initiative (@CIRSEIU), where resident and faculty physicians in New York-area hospitals will take a leap forward by meeting to empower physicians to conduct scholarly quality improvement (QI) projects. Many of the resident physicians and organizers are Telluride alumni, and we are always excited to watch them carry quality and safety initiatives to the next level.

Saturday’s meeting agenda includes the following faculty:

  • Robert Sidlow, MD, MBA, Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine Albert Einstein College of Medicine Interim Chairman of Medicine Jacobi Medical Center and North Central Bronx Hospital, Bronx, NY
  • Karyn Baum, MD, MSEd, Associate Chairman for Clinical Improvement
    University of Minnesota Medical School Minneapolis, MN
  • Gregory S. Ogrinc, MD, MS, Associate Professor of Medicine and Community and Family Medicine, Director, Office of Research and Innovation in Medical Education, Dartmouth Medical School Associate Fellowship Director, White River Junction Veterans Hospital, White River Junction, VT
  • Amit S. Tibb, MD, FCCP, Assistant Professor, Department of Medicine, Albert Einstein College of Medicine Director, Medical Intensive Care Unit, Jacobi Medical Center
  • Sepideh Sedgh, DO, Pulmonary Critical Care Fellow, Maimonides Medical Center, Brooklyn, NY
    National President, Committee of Interns and Residents
  • Farbod Raiszadeh, MD, PhD, Committee of Interns and Residents Policy and Education Initiative
  • David Eshak, MD, Internal Medicine Resident Jacobi Medical Center, Bronx, NY
    New York Regional Vice President, Committee of Interns and Residents
The recent press release from CIRSEIU that follows provides additional information about the program. If you can join this group on Saturday, it will be a day well spent.

“It is tremendously gratifying to witness the cultural transformation which has taken place in the world of graduate medical education: it is now axiomatic that physicians must be given the skill set to “round on” and “cure” sick systems in addition to sick patients,” said Dr. Robert Sidlow, Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Interim Chairman of Medicine at Jacobi Medical Center. “Since frontline housestaff are now expected to learn and apply principles of Quality Improvement to their everyday work, it is only natural that we, as educators, teach trainees how to convert their efforts into generalizable, publishable scholarship and communal learning. This conference intends to accomplish just that.”

“As physicians on the frontline, we know our patients and we want the best for them. That’s why we’re leading quality improvement and patient safety endeavors in our hospitals,” said Dr. David Eshak, Telluride alum and an internal medicine resident at Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx and a regional vice president of the Committee of Interns and Residents. “For us to be effective in QI, we need to work hand-in-hand with all stakeholders and we need to publish our work.”

The program features nationally recognized patient safety and quality improvement innovators Dr. Greg Ogrinc from Dartmouth Medical School and Dr. Karyn Baum from the University of Minnesota. Their hands-on, case-study approach focuses on closing the gap in training in evidence-based methods of process improvement and patient safety.
