Registration for AHI's Premier Conference is Open!

February 14, 2012

The Academy for Healthcare Improvement (AHI) is sponsoring a two-day meeting in Arlington, VA on May 7- 8, 2012 on "Advancing the Methods for Quality Improvement Research." The meeting program has a stellar line-up of experts on quality improvement research. We also will hold interactive sessions on best practices for research with roundtable discussions on use cases, with an emphasis on characterizing implementation science and its future. Additionally, we are inviting the healthcare community to submit their work for possible platform or poster presentation. Abstracts submission for oral and poster presentation is open, and topics of high interest include:

  • Mechanisms of quality improvement
  • Constructs of theory and implementation science, and
  • Best practices for evaluation of healthcare delivery improvement.

AHI is an international organization whose aim is to foster an inter-professional community that advances healthcare improvement through scholarly and educational activities. More information and registration for this conference is available online at
