Quality improvement efforts showcased at UF Health Patient Safety and Quality Week

The department showcased its quality improvement efforts in interventional pain procedures, obstetric anesthesia, and simulation training at this year’s UF Health Patient Safety and Quality Week poster session on Wednesday, May 18.

Four posters from the Department of Anesthesiology were on display during the event. Patient Safety and Quality Week, presented by the UF Health Sebastian Ferrero Office of Clinical Quality and Patient Safety, included several educational sessions celebrating the resilience and work of quality improvement teams and leaders.
