IHI Open School Forum

Hello everyone,

The plan for Capital day 2011 is now going to be transitioned from an SNA-SC event to an event hosted by The Institute for Healthcare Improvement. SNA-SC will be making a push to participate in the upcoming Institute of Healthcare Improvement Open School Initiative. (Check out the brochure for this event here.) This is a great opportunity for SNA-SC and nursing as a whole to make an impact in the area of quality and safety improvement within the healthcare setting. This FREE event will be held on March 17th at the Marriott in Columbia, SC from 12:30-4:30 and will include lunch. The registration form will be posted on the SNA-SC website and I will bring forms to the March 5th COSR meeting. At that time we will also have Dr. John Whitcomb from Clemson University to speak on what IHI is about and how we as nurses can become involved. I encourage you all to come the the March 5th COSR meeting and hear Dr. Whitcomb speak. Please feel free to visit http://www.ihi.org/IHI/Programs/IHIOpenSchool/ for more information. I look forward to seeing you all in the near future. Thank you and have a great week.
