July Message from Leadership

July Message from Leadership

Every so often we get a chance to sit back and reflect on the work we do and why we do it. Sometimes those reflections come when we’re sitting at our desk or in our car. And, sometimes they occur as part of a larger experience such as NAHQ Next, which takes place September 18-20. I’m looking forward to spending time at NAHQ Next to reflect on the progress we’ve made as a profession and to talk with many of you about why we do this work.

The conference is just a couple of months away, and we are delighted to see that it’s resonating with the profession. Registration for NAHQ Next continues to be strong.

The planning committee has taken careful consideration to offer a conference that meets the diverse needs of healthcare quality professionals across the continuum. They include:

  • Follow the Money: Dealing with Quality & Economics at the Same Time
  • Restructuring a Quality Program to Dramatically Improve Clinical Outcomes
  • Creating a Hospital-wide Quality Revolution

At NAHQ Next, not only will you enhance your healthcare quality knowledge, but you’ll also have the opportunity to take advantage of resources to advance your career from sitting for your professional headshot and speaking with a coach who can provide advice on the challenges you face.

You’ll also find a little fun mixed in, too. Join us at Oktoberfest to celebrate our long-standing friendships and new acquaintances united by our common bond: healthcare quality. We are members of a profession that truly makes a difference.

Will you be joining me in Cincinnati, OH? There’s still time to register but early bird ends on July 24 and NAHQ’s hotel blocks are filling up. Register today, and I’ll see you at NAHQ Next! 

Nancy Curdy, MSN MS-HQPS RN CPHQ CPPS
NAHQ President
