Celebrating our 9th consecutive year, the IES Quality Summit will be held on Thursday, April 28, 2022, at the Irving Convention Center in Dallas. But there’s more! With IES’ exciting growth into the Houston area, we are thrilled to announce a second location to attend and view this year’s Summit via a live streaming feed at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston and satellite viewing locations available for Florida and Arizona attendees!
This year’s Summit has an exceptional lineup of speakers emphasizing the value of empathy, compassion, and communication has on patient experience and care, including discussions on the downstream impact of provider burnout in our profession. Jeff A. Kline, MD, Associate Chair of Research, Emergency Medicine, will lead the discussion on the topic of Empathy and Compassion, followed by a group breakout session where we will engage our learners through live demonstrations of true case-based scenarios between the patient and a provider and/or nurse interaction.
At IES, we invest heavily in our education and leadership structure to help our physicians and APPs always be at the top of their game. The IES Quality Summit was developed to share evidence-based practices that produce better quality outcomes and enhance Emergency Medicine’s value to overall healthcare delivery.
The Summit will also feature a Quality Poster Contest. Each poster will highlight process improvement and quality program initiatives that demonstrate the tremendous value that Emergency Medicine brings to our patients and the communities that we serve.
The IES Quality Summit is open to providers, hospital administrators, and key stakeholders dedicated to enhancing healthcare delivery through Emergency Medicine. Providers will acquire tools and resources to enhance their practice through evidence-based continuing medical education (CME) and continuing education (CE) credits that will be offered. Due to the previous attendance record, we anticipate approximately 500 emergency department healthcare providers from the CHI St. Luke’s Health System, Baylor Scott & White, John Peter Smith, surrounding, and out-of-state emergency departments. Upon completion of the Summit, participants will be able to apply the latest advances in clinical applications, diagnoses, treatments, and practice management necessary for enhanced patient care.
