The Performance & Quality Improvement Session (PQIS) routinely has the highest ratings and attendance of the Scientific Meeting. Many in attendance have deemed a “NOT TO BE MISSED” session providing a unique educational opportunity to learn from colleagues about challenging and interesting case studies with the goal of improving patient care.
