NICQ 2007: Improvement in Action

Edited by Jeffrey D. Horbar, MD, Kathy Leahy and James Handyside

Vermont Oxford Network is pleased to present the eBook - NICQ 2007: Improvement in Action. This ebook is the culmination of NICQ 2007, a two-year improvement collaborative involving teams of neonatal professionals and families representing 46 hospitals in North America whose goal was always to provide care that is family centered, safe, effective, equitable, efficient, timely and socially and environmentally responsible. The chapters addressing these 7 domains were written by invited experts and illustrated with improvement stories from teams that participated in the collaborative. We hope that their stories will guide and inspire other NICU teams to make dramatic improvements for the patients and families they serve.
