Avoca Quality Consortium Leading Change Collaborative Forum

Based on the positive feedback received regarding the COVID-19 Rapid Response Working Group (RRWG) sessions, Avoca has introduced a monthly Leading Change Collaborative Forum open exclusively to AQC Members.

Each month, compelling topics are featured that are designed to encourage provocative discussion. As in the case of the COVID-19 RRWG, an Avoca SME facilitates a panel representing all appropriate stakeholder groups. The focus remains on providing practical and actionable support and having immediate “peer-to-peer” benchmarking about how other organizations are managing the topic or question at hand, all while ensuring prioritization of patient safety, data integrity, and regulatory compliance.

AQC Members have access to detailed Executive Summaries of each monthly session in the AQC Knowledge Center. Members and non-Members can view weekly session highlights below.
