QCOR Scientific Sessions

Programming Description

Participants in the Quality of Care and Outcomes Research (QCOR) in Cardiovascular Disease and Stroke conference play a major role in efforts to improve the quality of cardiovascular medical care and patient outcomes. It is the only major international meeting focused on cardiovascular issues in which clinical researchers interact in a meaningful way with policy makers and quality outcomes experts. The confluence of these players is critical in today’s changing healthcare environment, in which quality and cost issues can no longer be divorced from clinical care or the patient experience.
