Efforts to improve health promotion campaigns and healthcare services were profiled at the Lowitja Institute's recent Continuous Quality Improvement conference, reports Marie McInerney. The conference yielded many pithy tips, including: 'A good motto for CQI innovation: Steal shamelessly, share generously'; and 'Tell me and I'll forget; show me and I may remember; but include me and I'll understand'. And towards the bottom of this post - the final instalment of Croakey's coverage of the conference - is a gallery of tweets and photos.
