2024 PQA Annual Meeting Features Almost Two Dozen Research Posters

The upcoming 2024 PQA Annual Meeting's poster session will showcase 23 quality improvement and research projects. Sponsored by Pharmacy Quality Solutions, this session offers authors a platform to exhibit their work and enables attendees to engage in insightful discussions about healthcare quality.

The posters complement the meeting's array of educational programming, which includes four general sessions, 12 breakout sessions, a PQA and IHI continuing education seminar and a special pre-meeting half-day workshop. The breakout sessions, PQA/IHI seminar and half-day workshop are ACPE accredited for pharmacist continuing education.

This year’s poster session takes place on day two of the meeting, Wednesday, May 15, from 4:45-6:00 p.m., as part of the networking reception.

PQA conference posters provide comprehensive information about the study's objectives, methodology, and outcomes. The collaborative spirit at PQA is exceptional and a key factor in the organization's effectiveness. PQA's extensive membership and widespread influence in all aspects of medication use create an environment that fosters inclusivity and innovation.

This event offers an excellent opportunity to connect with pioneers and emerging leaders in medication use quality. In addition to completed projects, there will also be a student and fellow section to include works in progress.
