Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Faculty Development Program

Numerous national organizations have called for the integration of quality improvement and patient safety (QI/PS) training into the education of today’s healthcare providers. This includes the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (Milestones and Clinical Learning Environment Review (CLER) initiatives) and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (Quality and Safety Education in Nursing Project).

Unfortunately, a major barrier to the incorporation of QI/PS into provider education is the lack of adequate numbers of faculty trained in QI/PS education. To address this need locally, the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria Department of Graduate Medical Education and the UIC College of Medicine Department of Medical Education have collaborated to develop and implement a two part faculty development program, which will provide an in-depth introduction to QI/PS and curriculum development principles.

At the end of the program, participants will have designed a QI/PS curriculum specifically designed for their specialty and will be able to:

  • Discuss healthcare systems (micro & macro) and the effect of complexity on patient care.
  • Describe and discuss the major concepts of adverse event reporting, organizational transparency, and clinical errors.
  • Examine Human Factors Engineering (HFE) and Health Information Technology (HIT) and their roles in patient safety.
  • Demonstrate foundational knowledge in healthcare quality including process improvement and its accompanying tools, methods, and techniques.

Program Highlights

  • Modality: 100% online
  • Length: 16 Weeks (January 14-May 3, 2019)
  • Cost: $2,000
  • Continuing Medical Education Credits: 80
