Reflections from Telluride

Through the lectures, activities, and patient stories at Telluride, I left completely recharged and ready to work on QI initiatives at my institution. I was particularly impressed by the Caring for the Caregiver Program, as, while we have an institutional-type employee assistance program, we do not have a program particularly geared towards residents and fellows. I was also impressed by the Go Teams and PFACs. The patient stores resonated most with me, however – patients are so frequently left out of these discussions when really they should be at the center of them. As I start to work on QI projects this year, I will remember the lessons learned at Telluride and am appreciative of the network of support and resources that I gained from attending this conference.
