Monday, April 15
Cost: $195


Join the Pharmacy Quality Alliance (PQA) on Monday, April 15, 2024, for a half-day workshop, Medication Use Quality: A PQA Live CE Event, as a pre-conference program at AMCP 2024 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Topics covered will include:   

    • The Role of Quality Measurement in Healthcare  
    • Quality Measurement Professionals: From Development to Implementation. 
    • What Makes a Good Measure?

This live event will allow you to engage with faculty in question-and-answer sessions and dynamic group discussions and activities. Participants will be able to network with other quality improvement professionals. This session will help to build foundational knowledge into medication use quality.  It will introduce participants to the current state of healthcare delivery in the United States before continuing onto measurement program foundations, highlighting value-based models of care where measures are implemented as part of measurement programs.

This session's target audience is those who are new to quality, including students, and those who have some familiarity with healthcare stakeholders and the medication use quality landscape but would like to deepen their knowledge.
