  1. Dear Colleague,
    I have been searching online for opportunities to visit the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality and the Johns Hopkins Hospital.

    I am the performance review and audit coordinator for Fiona Stanley Fremantle Hospital Group in Western Australia. I have been working in safety and quality for 8 years, and am undertaking PhD study in this field.

    I am keen to know if there are any opportunities to visit you during December this year. I am attending the IHI National Forum in Orlando 8-11 December and hope to be able to visit you prior or after the forum.

    Look forward to hearing from you.
    Best regards,
