2020 Stanford Radiology Improvement Summit

“The Learning Network”

Dear Colleagues,

 We are pleased to invite you to the 2020 Stanford Radiology Improvement Summit sponsored by the Stanford Department of Radiology, to be held on the Stanford campus on Friday-Saturday, February 7-8, 2020.

 The Children's Hospitals' Solutions for Patient Safety Network titled their summary article, "We Will Not Compete on Safety." They are a decentralized network of hospital leaders with a mission to eliminate unnecessary harm in children's hospitals around the country. Their guiding principle? Harm at one children's hospital is a failure for each of them. They have organized themselves as a true learning network, driving dramatic change in a constructive, mutually supportive way.

 This year we will focus on what we can learn from such "learning networks" to create the tide that lifts all of our boats for the benefit of our patients. We would love for you to join us.

 The program will again be all day Friday and Saturday morning until noon. By popular demand, we will also have the early morning Excel lab on Saturday morning, and this year we will be adding a policy discussion on the definition of critical results, moderated by David Larson and Karin Kuhn, also being held Saturday morning. Advance registration is required for the Excel lab (available on the online registration form).

 Registration fees will be $450 per person prior to Feb 1st, at which point late registration fees will be $500 per person. This activity has been approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™ by Stanford University School of Medicine.


 The Stanford University School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.


 The Stanford University School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 11.25 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM.  Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

 The California Board of Registered Nursing recognizes that Continuing Medical Education (CME) is acceptable for meeting RN continuing education requirements as long as the course is certified for AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM (rn.ca.gov).  Nurses will receive a Certificate of Participation following this activity that may be used for license renewal.

 Thank you for your great efforts in improvement and we hope to see you in sunny California in February!
