Quality Month is a yearly celebration of the hard work that Michigan Medicine faculty and staff demonstrate every day toward continuous improvement and enhancing the quality and safety of care provided to patients.

If you are part of a team working to implement process improvements, consider submitting a poster highlighting your project — the Quality Month poster session is open to any team working on continuous improvement projects across the health system.

If you are thinking about submitting a poster, be sure that your project submission demonstrates the following:

  • Connections between improvement objectives and organizational goals of safety, quality, timeliness, financial stewardship and people engagement;
  • A clear relationship between root cause and countermeasures;
  • Measurable assessment of the outcomes of experiments;
  • At least one completed Plan-Do-Check-Adjust cycle of improvement.

If you have questions, please email Quality-Month@med.umich.edu. Submissions are due by June 21 and no late submissions will be accepted.

Thank you for all you do to improve the quality and safety of care at Michigan Medicine!
