ACC Quality Summit explores practical strategies to reboot and rebrand health care quality

The conference focuses on the enduring value of ACC Accreditation and NCDR services for achieving quality care

2023-10-02
(Press-News.org) The 2023 American College of Cardiology (ACC) Quality Summit kicks off on October 11-13 in Orlando, Florida, putting the spotlight on the value of ACC Accreditation and NCDR services to enhance health care quality. Cardiovascular clinicians and stakeholders across the U.S. will converge at this year’s Summit to discuss the role of accreditation and registries in health equity initiatives, best practices for rebooting and rebranding health care quality, and strategies to engage the CV team in the quality process.

“ACC’s Quality Summit is an exceptional opportunity for anyone interested in improving the quality of cardiac care to learn about the latest advances in the field and to network with like-minded professionals,” said David Winchester, MD, MS, associate professor of medicine at the University of Florida College of Medicine and program chair for ACC Quality Summit. “At the Summit, we will be exploring advances in research on quality, discussing accreditation and registry services, and learning from internationally renowned speakers.”

Stephanie Mercado, CAE, CPHQ, CEO of the National Association for Healthcare Quality, will deliver the Ralph G. Brindis Keynote, "A Winning Strategy: Unleash Human Potential of the Workforce to Advance Quality and Safety." Other must-see sessions include:

How to Navigate Quality in the Face of Corporate Medicine Cardiovascular Disease Prevention at the Population Level AI and the Care of the CV Patient The conference will be held in-person and feature over 30 educational sessions allowing attendees to earn a wide variety of continuing education credits.

Study: Scientists investigate grand canyon's ancient past to predict future climate impacts

Study: Scientists investigate grand canyons ancient past to predict future climate impacts
2023-10-02
The Grand Canyon’s valleys and millions of years of rock layers spanning Earth’s history have earned it a designation as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. But, according to a new UNLV study, its marvels extend to vast cave systems that lie beneath the surface, which just might hold clues to better understand the future of climate change — by studying nature’s past. A research team — led by UNLV paleoclimatologist and professor Matthew Lachniet — pulled an ancient stalagmite from the floor of an undisturbed Grand Canyon cave. By studying the mineral deposits’ geochemistry, they were able to analyze precipitation patterns during the rapidly ...

Study reveals high accuracy of MR-guided radiotherapy for intracranial itereotactic radiosurgery
2023-10-02
A new study, led by radiation oncology physicists at Miami Cancer Institute, part of Baptist Health South Florida, displayed positive results using intracranial stereotactic radiosurgery, also known as SRS, for an MR-guided radiotherapy system. The study, ‘Commissioning Intracranial Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) for an MR-guided Radiotherapy (MRgRT) system: MR-RT Localization and Dosimetric End-to-End Validation’ published in the International Journal of Radiation Oncology - Biology - Physics (IJROBP), highlights positive accuracy through an end-to-end hidden target test to quantify the imaging, planning, and delivery coincidence ...

Trivalent vaccine candidate fights measles, mumps, SARS-CoV-2

2023-10-02
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Altered measles and mumps viruses could be used as a platform to create a trivalent COVID-19 vaccine that triggers immunity to multiple variant strains of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, new research in animals suggests. The study builds upon previous studies that involved inserting a highly stable segment of the coronavirus spike protein into the measles vaccine or mumps vaccine. In a paper publishing this week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, scientists at The Ohio State University report on a new MMS vaccine candidate – for Measles, ...

2023-10-02
Researchers led by Giulia Galli at University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering report a computational study that predicts the conditions to create specific spin defects in silicon carbide. Their findings, published online in Nature Communications, represent an important step towards identifying fabrication parameters for spin defects useful for quantum technologies.  Electronic spin defects in semiconductors and insulators are rich platforms for quantum information, sensing, and communication applications. Defects are impurities and/or misplaced atoms in a solid and the electrons associated with these atomic defects carry ...

Fair and sustainable futures beyond mining

Fair and sustainable futures beyond mining
2023-10-02
Mining brings huge social and environmental change to communities: landscapes, livelihoods and the social fabric evolve alongside the industry. But what happens when the mines close? What problems face communities that lose their main employer and the very core of their identity and social networks? A research fellow at the University of Göttingen provides recommendations for governments to successfully navigate mining communities through their transition toward non-mining economies. Based on past experiences with industrial transitions, she suggests that a three-step approach centred around stakeholder ...
