Every two years, the Children’s Hospital Association (CHA) Pediatric Quality Award (PQA) is given to honor outstanding quality improvement work accomplished in children's hospitals. The award specifically recognizes strategies that have successfully changed clinical care, transformed care delivery, improved patient safety and reduced waste.
After reviewing 110 entries from 60 children's hospitals, CHA judges selected 13 projects to advance as 2017 award semifinalists, including a project led by Lindsay Terrell, MD, assistant professor of pediatrics in the Division of Primary Care Pediatrics, entitled “Improving the Care of Children in Foster Care: An Academic Community QI Collaborative.”
CHA will honor the semifinalists and announce the category winners, and overall winner, at the 2018 Quality & Safety in Children's Health Conference in March.
