Call for Presentations for 2019 THA Leadership Summit

Tennessee Hospital Association’s Tennessee Center for Patient Safety, along with the Tennessee Chapters of the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE), Tennessee Organization of Nurse Leaders (formerly TONE), Tennessee Society for Organizational Improvement (TSOI), and the Tennessee Association for Healthcare Quality (TAHQ) are hosting the annual Leadership Summit on October 16th at the Franklin Marriott in Cool Springs. The Leadership Summit will be held in conjunction with the THA Annual Meeting on October 16-18.

The Leadership Summit will continue the tradition of highlighting Tennessee hospitals and health systems’ successful strategies to create a culture for performance excellence and improve patient outcomes. New this year will be the opportunity for executives and leaders to earn ACHE face-to-face credits for attending the summit.

We are seeking presentation proposals from hospitals across Tennessee that demonstrate and share best practices on fostering an organizational culture of excellence, quality and patient safety improvement successes, engaging patients and families, navigating transitions of care, and strategies to promote collaboration and teamwork. This is a great opportunity to network and share successful strategies among hospitals, as well as recognize and reward staff members’ hard work on improving care for patients.

Please share the attached calls for proposals throughout your organization and encourage your staff to apply for either an oral presentation or poster. Please note that the application for oral presentations and the application for poster presentations have been simplified and made separate. Applications are due by July 10, 2019. The links to the applications are below.

Please submit completed proposals to Kari Ellis.
