2017 VQI@ VAM Comments:

  • “Process improvement projects were emphasized greatly which is valuable to all facilities”
  • “Thought it was well organized with the appropriate breaks and time to interact. Wouldn't change it!”
  • “I really enjoyed the breakout sessions. They were small enough to be able to ask questions of the experts. The panel discussion was also very informative.”
  • “I really enjoyed the level of interaction by physicians. It showed how much they value all the hard work the nurse abstractors and data managers do to make them look good.”
  • “It was great to have an extra half day session. I thought having breakout sessions the first day was an improvement, more relevant for participants to choose which modules they wanted to do a deeper dive into. Poster presentations were a great addition - I'm sure participation will grow in the future. Great job! Thank you!”
  • “Excellent conference. The educational sessions by the physicians on Tuesday were very informative and helpful (break outs).”
