The ASH Committee on Quality (COQ) will host this year’s ASH Poster Walk on Healthcare Quality Improvement, presenting abstracts focused on quality improvement, covering both malignant and non-malignant topics. Quality improvement projects and quality-related outcomes research are integral to helping clinicians and their institutions deliver the most appropriate care in an efficient and effective manner, while avoiding unnecessary tests, procedures and medical errors. The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has made these issues particularly acute, especially in the context of clinicians seeking to monitor and rapidly implement guidance (including the ASH guidelines on the use of anticoagulation in patients with COVID-19). Quality improvement projects are also increasingly encouraged or required for hematology trainees; highlighting practice-changing work in the field can provide models for trainees and early-career hematologists to follow at their own institutions.

The following abstracts will be featured in this session:

A Resident-Led Quality Improvement Initiative to Optimize Care for Children and Young Adults with Sickle Cell Disease Vaso-Occlusive Pain with Intranasal Fentanyl in the Emergency Department, Wilson Vasconez Samaniego
