Save the Date for this year's Campaign for Quality October x-x, 2015

A new perspective on today's ever changing healthcare system.

Tiffany Christensen will kick off Campaign For Quality on Friday at Hamilton College. Christensen was born with cystic fibrosis, a life limiting genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system. She spent a significant amount time in the hospital as a patient after receiving two double lung transplants. When she was well enough, she began helping others who were trying to navigate through the complex healthcare system. Christensen is a patient safety advocate and patient engagement specialist who will inspire everyone in the audience.

 

The free educational event on Friday at Hamilton College in Clinton, New York, is open to all employees, medical staff and volunteers from hospitals across New York State, as well as the general public. In 2015, nearly 500 physicians, healthcare workers, students and community members were in attendance. More than 20 hospitals and 13 healthcare organizations located throughout New York State were represented at last year’s CFQ.

Following this activity participants will 
be able to: 
 • Grasp the tenets of population health.
 • Discuss specific strategies for preventing and managing stress and minimizing its effects on our well-being.
 • Understand motivational interviewing and its clinical usefulness.
 • Discuss common knee injuries requiring surgery.
