Health care quality professionals serve in important roles within organizations. The National Association for Healthcare Quality (NAHQ) is recognizing quality professionals for their contributions across the country and the world. Healthcare Quality Week, October 15-21, celebrates health care quality professionals.

“Healthcare quality professionals are invaluable to the success of an organization, and they are continually looking for the next improvement opportunity,” says NAHQ President Nancy Curdy, MSN MS-HQPS RN CPHQ CPPS. “In the fast-moving and complex healthcare environment that we work in, it’s essential to have trained and qualified professionals, specifically focused on systems and processes and methods of measuring, analyzing, and improving them to achieve best outcomes.”

NAHQ has developed a number of resources for organizations and individuals to join the effort in raising awareness for health care quality professionals. The resources can be found here.
