National Silver Quality Award Workshop Series

National Silver Quality Award Workshop Series
HCAM/MCAL, in partnership with Care Providers of Minnesota, presents a SILVER Quality Award virtual Workshop Series to help you better understand the Silver Award application criteria, scoring, and strategies for a successful 2025 application submission.

This workshop is about more than an award; besides gaining a better understanding of what examiners are looking for and how to use the award criteria as an improvement tool, you will learn how to use the award process to focus, align, and accelerate your performance excellence efforts thus becoming a high-performing organization.

Bronze recipients have three years to apply for Silver from the year they received the Bronze award. Silver recipients outline their systematic approaches and demonstrate sustainable organizational and process results linked to their key customer requirements, success factors, and challenges.
Suggested participants for this workshop are administrators or executive directors and directors of nursing, along with other leadership team members—including owners. A team approach is the most effective method to develop your application in a manner that makes it your “management document” and not just an award application.

Do you know the status of your current quality award? Is your facility an “active” award recipient or a “past” recipient? Take a look at the year you received your current award and compare it to the national quality award program renewal policy. Once you know your renewal status, you will be able to determine if you want to move “up”, renew at the same level, or start the process all over. You can learn more about the national quality award program here
