Welcome to the 2018 World Conference on Quality and Improvement Program Planner!
The program planner provides access to the entire 2018 World Conference program.
How do I use the program planner?
You have three options:
Log in and create your personal itinerary
This option allows you to search all sessions without logging in to the program planner. You can conduct a detailed search by scrolling over the program tab and selecting one of the following “Browse By” search fields. You can also select “Schedule at a Glance” to see the entire program layout by date and time.
“Browse By” options:
By session type
By focus area
For example, a typical search might begin by entering a keyword, e.g., “improvement," in the keyword search box, and press enter on your keyboard. A listing of every session with "improvement" in the title will appear in the search results displayed below the search panel. The word "improvement" will be highlighted if it is located in the session title listed.
Narrow down the results of your keyword search by first using a combination of the other search choices in the menu. For example, you can choose to browse by day and then type "improvement" into the search bar. Your search will return all sessions with "improvement" in the title on Monday.
Once the list of sessions appears, you can select the title of each session to read the full session details in a pop-up box.
Log In to the Program Planner
First-time users: Select "Create a New Account" on the login page. This will allow you to select sessions as favorites and create a schedule for the conference.
Already have an account: Log in by using the access key that was emailed to you when creating your account. If you do not remember your access key, you can select the "Forgot Access Key" link on the login page.
Adding Favorites and Creating a Schedule
Once you are logged in, you can select the star to the right of the session title. Selecting the star allows you to add the session to your itinerary. Once added, you have the ability to view your selected sessions in the "My Schedule" portion of the planner, manage your favorites, and even add notes about the session. *Please note, sessions added to your itinerary are not transferred over to the mobile app.
To add notes, you will need to be logged in to your profile. Once you have favorited a session, you can select the favorited session from the search option or select within the "My Schedule" section of your profile. Simply click on the gray square next to the star and add a note. Once you have added your details to the square, it will turn blue.
View Session Details
Select the title of a session in your search results to open a pop-up box that provides the complete information for that session. You can read the description, presenter bio, and view the learning objectives. If you decide you would like to add a particular session to your personal itinerary, you may do so by selecting the star next to the title. This action turns the session into a "favorite" and it will be added to your personal itinerary. *Please note, when you select a session as a “favorite” in the program planner, it will not transfer over to the mobile app.
Editing Your Profile
You may edit or update your profile at any time. You will simply need to log in, select "My Conference Profile," and update the fields. You may also upload a photo for your profile.
