Welcome to SCIENCE NEWS from
Quality of Care and Outcomes Research 2015 Scientific Sessions

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE

 

Dear QCOR Attendees:

 

You have undoubtedly seen news reports of the growing unrest in Baltimore. After speaking with local authorities, hotel management and the Convention and Visitors Bureau we have decided to cancel the 2015 QCOR conference due to the potential for additional violence. Your safety and well-being are our highest concerns. In the coming days, our staff will:

 

  • Continue to provide attendee updates as they become available
     
  • Discuss what steps we might take to credit your registration fees
     
  • Provide you with information in the event you would like to consider donating your registration fees to help offset the cost of the meeting cancellation
     

Thank you for your continued dedication to Quality of Care and Outcomes Research.

 

 

Highlighted below is just a small sampling of the exclusive science submitted for Quality of Care and Outcomes Research 2015 Scientific Sessions.
