Stanford Resident/Fellow Quality Improvement & Patient Safety Symposium

The seventh annual Stanford Resident/Fellow Quality Improvement & Patient Safety Symposium was held virtually on May 17, 2021 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.  Stanford neurology residents and fellows were involved in 10 of the 45 projects. Two projects led by neurology residents were recognized with Top 10 awards. One award-winning focused on improving documentation of seizure events in pediatrics patients. The other award-winning project examined the barriers to effective real-time feedback in neurology. Additional details about the Symposium can be found here.
