American College of Surgeons Inspiring Quality Event: Strong for Surgery

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) hosted its fifth Surgical Health Care Quality Forum on April 11th at the Ranier Club in Seattle, WA. The event brought together a diverse combination of leaders from Washington State's aviation and health care industries to discuss quality improvement programs and best practices in checklists, standardization, culture shifts and transparency to make surgery safer and reduce health care costs.

This event also celebrated the launch of the Strong for Surgery initiative in Washington State, which brings a pre-surgical checklist and nutritional interventions to doctors' offices to further improve surgical outcomes.
