Welcome

A Message from the UAHQ President, Shelly Rives

I am pleased to invite you to attend our Utah Association of Healthcare Quality Annual Conferences 2021, “Discovering Balance: Strategies or Sustaining Healthcare Quality.”  The UAHQ board chose this title to inspire you to find some balance at home and in your quality improvement work.  We have lined up a great group of people who will share strategies for:
  • Attracting and retaining a quality workforce
  • Discovering balance in our Social Determinants of Health, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion panel discussion
  • Applying evidence-based practices in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit
  • Operational strategies and quality improvement
  • The Psychology of Change
The NAHQ Healthcare Quality Competency Framework – National Association for Healthcare Quality has inspired our work this year to encourage our members to assess individual and program’s competencies.   The framework assessment helped me to look at my areas of strength and weaknesses and gave me direction for educational opportunities. 
According to the Department of workforce services, Utah’s jobless rate is 2.6% in August and COVID-19 has made hiring and retaining a healthcare workforce difficult. We are happy to have our keynote speaker, Bill Humbert teach us strategies to ROAR: Recruit, Onboard, Actuate, and Retain a High Impact Workforce.
Please register today, we can’t wait to see you on October 28th!
Warm regards,
Shelly Rives, 2021 UAHQ President
