Ever think about how the “old school” patient-centered approach may improve the quality of care delivered in the fast-paced environment of Primary Care? If so, please join the BU Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) Open School chapter for their first major event. *TOPIC: How shared decision-making in clinical care can improve health outcomes *SPEAKER: Dr. Leigh Simmons, Primary Care Physician from MGH We will also provide an overview of our organization and how you can join and be a part of a quality improvement project.
