Primaris to host American Society of Quality training

Primaris will host The American Society of Quality (ASQ) and offer a customized quality improvement training, specific to long term care, at our office in Columbia in June. It is our intention to empower participants to cultivate a continuous quality improvement culture in their organizations, and give them the tools to apply sophisticated quality improvement techniques. We are seeking applicants who are leaders that inspire the long term care community to question mediocrity and seek excellence.

The American Society of Quality (ASQ) is an internationally known community of people that provides training, professional certifications, and knowledge to a vast network of members of the global quality community. With world headquarters in Milwaukee, WI, they provide in-depth training on quality improvement.

Primaris is committed to planting the seeds of true quality improvement and investing in Missouri’s long term care professionals. To be considered for this training, your facility must submit the scholarship application by May 5. Space is limited to 34 homes.

A scholarship requirement is that each home sends two people. You will notice there are two training date options. After applications are submitted, and requested dates are selected, the Primaris team will assign scholarship recipients with a training date.

Application recipients will receive a discounted price of $100 per attendee ($200 per facility) for the two-day training. A typical registration fee for non-ASQ members is $1395, but Primaris is able to offer this opportunity at a reduced rate for scholarship recipients.

This fee includes:
• Access to expert quality improvement professionals
• NHA clock hours
• Networking with other long-term care professionals
• Catered lunches and refreshments

Long-term care professionals that are committed to excellence are encouraged to apply for this educational opportunity. Selected participants will be expected to share and spread these concepts with others. This training provides you with the opportunity to share your stories and best practices. We want participants to learn quality improvement techniques, sustain their learning and the application of this knowledge, and share brazenly.

We look forward to your participation.
