The Patient Experience
The patient safety challenges in this program aren’t theoretical. Participants step into the shoes of a team at a virtual hospital that has very real problems. As they are introduced to concepts and improvement tools, participants get frequent opportunities to apply them to realistic, engaging scenarios.
This self-paced program requires about 18.5 hours to complete and carries continuing medical education credits.
"I love the language, processes and skills that this program teaches…I still look at my program materials often just to make sure I am on the right track when addressing patient safety concerns and staff concerns. I frequently use the different tools that it introduced…
There are many styles of learning and this provided a little of each, so no one would walk away without many takeaways."
