The Annual UC Davis Health Quality Forum, launched in 2011, is an inter-professional program that brings together health care leaders, clinicians, educators, trainees and students at UC Davis Health to share strategies to improve clinical quality and patient safety, enhance health professions education, and engage inter-professional teams to deliver high-value care.

The program features keynote speakers and presentations on innovative approaches to delivering safe, timely, effective, efficient, equitable, and person-centered health care.

The objectives of the Quality Forum are for participants to: (1) Increase their knowledge of quality improvement and patient safety initiatives at UC Davis Health, (2) Understand ways to enhance high quality care and patient safety, (3) Set a personal goal to improve quality or patient safety in their clinical practice.

Employees, house staff, fellows and students at UC Davis Health as well as Volunteer Clinical Faculty at affiliated institutions are invited to participate. The forum is held annually in March.
