Health Quality Ontario would like to thank everyone that took the time to submit an abstract and contribute to the success of Health Quality Transformation 2015.

Look for information soon on how to submit an abstract for HQT2016.

Poster of Distinction

Abstracts were allocated to oral presentations in either breakout sessions or one of five lunch and learns, or as poster presentations. See a summary of abstracts here. The poster with the highest mean score in each category was selected as Poster of Distinction*.

The selection process was led by the Abstract Review Committee, which was comprised of internal and external members, including patient and family caregiver representatives.
