This program gives participants the knowledge and tools they need to succeed as patient safety leaders.
Focusing on the core competencies needed to drive patient safety improvement, the five-day program covers such essential topics as patient safety culture, patient-centered care, safe design principles, and interdisciplinary teamwork and communication. With these foundational principles as background, participants will explore how to identify and mitigate risks and develop data-driven change efforts, using human factors engineering and Lean strategies to guide their improvement plans. They will see how the Comprehensive Unit-Based Safety Program (CUSP) provides one model for achieving patient safety outcomes.
The program uses a narrative framework—a fictitious hospital facing real-world patient safety challenges—to immerse participants in the work of problem-solving and planning patient safety initiatives. Mixing both face-to-face sessions and online learning, it is led by experts who have guided patient safety and quality improvement efforts at Johns Hopkins Medicine, across the United States and internationally.
The program is designed to help participants achieve the following goals at their organizations:
