Summit on Quality 2021

The Summit on Quality is an educational event drawing health care leaders from across Kansas. It features national keynote presenters, breakout sessions with health care leaders from across our state, a diversity of poster presentations, opportunities to network, and the Leadership in Quality Award.

Since 2009, Summit programming has been designed to engage and connect a wide range of health care professionals—including physicians (particularly residents), nurses, clinic managers, hospital CEOs and other senior management, quality improvement professionals, risk managers, infection preventionists, long-term care providers, and other interested health care professionals—practicing in both urban and rural settings throughout our state.

2021 Summit on Quality
May 21, 2021
Online event info TBA

Given the pandemic's continuing impact on activities in our state, we are making plans to host the Summit fully online. We hope this is not only the safest, most prudent approach for this year's event, but that it also allows for increased participation by busy professionals statewide, saving time and cost needed for travel to an in-person event.
