Abstract submission deadline for “Towards the Carolina Improvement Science Initiative: A Lightning Symposium”
April 10, 2017
The UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy is co-sponsoring Towards the Carolina Improvement Science Initiative: A Lightning Symposium on Friday, May 19, 2017 with six other professional schools across campus and the College of Arts & Sciences.
The purpose of the symposium is to bring together faculty, staff, and graduate students from across campus who are working on improvement at scale. The symposium aims to identify expertise in improvement science and its close cousins – design experimentation, quality improvement, and implementation science. Aimed at answering what works, for whom, and under what conditions, the approaches help to merge the power of rigorous research with systems thinking, design principles, innovation prototyping, and rapid-cycle testing to improve organizational decision-making and optimize outcomes.
