Abstract Category: IDEAS

Ideas are meant to describe original thinking, promising practices or emerging ways of how to improve care that are too young to have results. The Quality Forum is an excellent opportunity to seek input, inspiration collaboration and spark action at an early stage.

Abstracts submitted in this category are reviewed using the following scoring criteria:

Context & Relevance (15): The context in which the work was undertaken or how the idea came to be is clearly stated (what unit/department/community) and the problem or opportunity it seeks to address is identified. The proposed presentation has broad appeal in terms of educational merit and is likely of significant interest to Quality Forum participants.

Intervention (10): The new work practice, way of engaging providers, patient partners and others or idea on how to improve care is clearly described, along with any assumptions made and challenges or lessons learned to date.

Potential/Actual Impact (10): The extent to which what is being described may potentially impact or has already impacted quality or experience of care for patients and/or care providers.

Originality (15): The extent to which what is being described is highly innovative, new or different to what is known to have been previously tried in practice or presented at a past Quality Forum.
