Saturday’s SSAT programming begins with the Presidential Plenary II session, during which Conor P. Delaney, MD, MPH, will give the Doris and John L. Cameron Guest Oration. This session will include Q&A.

Never has it been more important to approach health care as a team. Although clinical and operational excellence is critical, to truly optimize patient care, it is vital to actively develop and support your team and how it functions by choosing the right people, setting the right cultural expectations, and providing empathetic and patient-centered care. In addition to structured operational support and guidance, this will help you provide your patients the highest quality care in the future.
