Mohawk Valley Health System (MVHS) Campaign For Quality celebrated its 18th anniversary with physicians, health care workers, students and community members from across the state on Oct. 17 and 18. The popular program, held at Hamilton College in Clinton, featured national and local experts who presented on current trends in health care, patient experiences and how to become a high reliability organization.
“Campaign for Quality is an educational event for the whole community,” said Darlene Stromstad, FACHE, president/CEO of MVHS. “This educational series brings together incredible speakers with years of experience on various topics that affect all of us. These renowned speakers are ones you’d expect to see in large cities or major academic health care institutes; however, the 2019 CFQ brought all of them right to our community, providing those in attendance with a better understanding of health care.”
Attendees selected sessions based on their interests. Topics included interventional cardiology, neuroendovascular therapies, responsibility in an age of vaccine skepticism, communication styles in a multigenerational workforce, high reliability, teamwork, accountability and more.
CFQ is sponsored by MVHS (affiliates include Faxton St. Luke’s Healthcare and St. Elizabeth Medical Center) as well as the medical staffs.
