Through the Bronze criteria, based on the Organizational Profile section of the Baldrige Health Care Criteria for Performance Excellence, members will assess their organization’s mission, vision, and key factors that lead to success. This will provide a strong foundation for the second step—the Silver – Achievement in Quality Award level.  The workshop will take attendees through each criteria question, discuss the criteria intention and provide time for attendees to answer.  At the end of the workshop an attendee can have a completed Bronze application.
