I'm going to be in New York CIty on Wednesday to give half of a talk: Pay for performance in ESRD; defining CQI Metrics focused on disease center performance and metrics focused on the patient experience. What are SF36 and NQF?
The 2017 Alison Norris Symposium: The Impact of Policy on Medical Care of Kidney Patients is free but you need to register. It runs from 3PM to 9PM this Wednesday (December 13, 2017) with a reception break from 6:30 to 7:30 and it isn't just me talking there's a whole lineup of great speakers. I'm very much looking forward to attending.
The Symposium honours the memory of Dr. Alison Norris whose interest in the psychosocial and ethical aspects of kidney care I share. My talk will be the view from the sharp end of the needle, about the value and limitations of patient reported outcomes and patient-centered care. As well my view of current legislation and trends.
The Symposium is taking place on what looks to be the Upper Upper East side, Fifth Avenue at 103rd Street. Come by, talk dialysis, say hi.
