Quality Conference March 2011

A renal community collaboration, presented by the Forum of ESRD Networks in partnership with dialysis corporations (DaVita, DCI , Fresenius, and Liberty Dialysis) and professional organizations (including the Renal Physicians Association) feels it is time to begin matching quality improvement techniques to the needs of individual organizations. To this end the coalition has planned an educational seminar to discuss how to identify which dialysis units are at risk of underperforming due to a culture that does not understand the processes necessary to produce quality outcomes; how to prepare these dialysis facilities for the changes required to improve care by developing a culture of quality; and how to build on these steps to have sustained improvement in the care of dialysis patients. This meeting is scheduled for March 16, 2011, in the Baltimore-Washington Airport area.
