About this item

This certificate course is comprised of three four-hour course modules. Upon successful completion, you will receive a Patient Safety Certificate to display proudly.

Module 1 discusses the relative risk for harm to patients in the health care system. Large studies and reports, such as the ones from the Institute of Medicine (IOM), To Err is Human and Crossing the Quality Chasm, revealed that harm to patients from medical errors is rampant and ultimately much of it is preventable.

Armed with that knowledge, Module 2 focuses on how health care organizations can both find and identify the risks that exist for their patients, as well as learn how to mitigate and prevent errors from occurring in the first place.

Module 3 explores the framework for success in advancing patient safety in health care organizations. Leadership is one of the most critical elements in a successful patient safety program. Safety is dependent on senior leaders directing efforts that foster the culture and commitment required to address the underlying systems that allow medical errors and harm to occur to patients.

At the conclusion of this activity, attendees should be able to:
  • Describe the historical progress of patient safety
  • Define a culture of safety, leadership roles, and systems-based thinking in advancing safety
  • Describe mechanisms to engage patients, family members, and team communication in improving patient safety
  • Describe the role of event reporting, data mining, and trigger tools in identifying and mitigating risk
  • Discuss response to medical errors when they occur
  • Identify methodologies for the use of data, process design, and process improvement in designing and measuring a patient safety program
