MD ID 6320 - Patient Safety & Quality
Description
This four-week elective is a Coursera-based specialization. You will use the Coursera platform to complete the course at your own pace during this four-week block.

About this Specialization:

Preventable patient harms, including medical errors and healthcare-associated complications, are a global public health threat. Moreover, patients frequently do not receive treatments and interventions known to improve their outcomes. These shortcomings typically result not from individual clinicians' mistakes, but from systemic problems -- communication breakdowns, poor teamwork, and poorly designed care processes, to name a few.

The Patient Safety & Quality Leadership Specialization covers the concepts and methodologies used in process improvement within healthcare. Successful participants will develop a system's view of safety and quality challenges and will learn strategies for improving culture, enhancing teamwork, managing change and measuring success. They will also lead all aspects of a patient safety and/or quality improvement project, applying the methods described over the seven courses in the specialization.

Applied Learning Project:

Learners will use real-world strategies, tools, and techniques to resolve various patient safety and quality issues based on authentic scenarios that occur in medical and clinical settings. They will also be required to leverage cross-disciplinary concepts to successfully address patient safety concerns.
