TECaN QI Update
Neonatology Trainee QI Projects
Trainees in Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine are doing a variety of innovative QI projects. We hope sharing these will offer a starting point for successful quality improvement project in other NICUs. The most successful quality improvement projects involve a multidisciplinary team. Consider working with RT, NNP, PA, and/or nurses to jump-start QI projects.
Thanks to an educational grant from Abbott Nutrition, all neonatal fellows currently in training may obtain a complimentary subscription of the NeoReviews Plus package.
