Call for Presenters: 2023 Quality Symposium


Join us for our virtual symposium!


The quality of care we provide to our residents today and in the future is the standard by which we are all being measured. With the challenge of continually striving to raise the quality of care we provide comes the opportunity to learn, grow and advance the quality of life and quality of care in our communities.

To help providers meet those challenges, PHCA is proudly hosting our all-virtual Annual Quality Symposium on March 13-24 2023 with up to 10 session slots available for presenters. The symposium will provide interactive, hands-on approaches to provide multiple opportunities to learn from expert faculty and industry leaders in a dynamic environment.

Presentations should focus on the development of quality programs, the integration of quality into operations and navigating the future of quality from a business perspective.
