Register for the Patient Safety and Quality Certificate Program

Registration is now open for the 2021-2022 Certificate Program in Patient Safety and Quality.

Now, more than ever, clinical departments and care units must improve the equity, quality, safety and value of their work. This innovative training program builds a cadre of front-line clinicians, staff and administrators with the skills to identify gaps in equity, quality, safety and value and the ability to develop and implement solutions to close them.

The UW Medicine Center for Scholarship in Patient Care Quality and Safety invites individuals and small teams (optimal size of three to eight) from all healthcare practices to register.

Program Topics:

  • Foundations in Quality Improvement and Patient Safety
  • Equity in Healthcare
  • Cost Savings and Healthcare Value
  • Local/Regional/National Landscape of Quality and Safety
  • Error Disclosure/Risk Management/Resilience Principles
  • Diagnostic Error
  • Leadership and Change Management
  • Information Technology and Patient Safety
  • SQUIRE Guidelines for Publishing
  • Bias and Microaggressions

Participants apply the curriculum through a mentored improvement project during the course. Projects can range widely, from traditional quality and safety efforts to clinic flow challenges, and from department or division administrative efforts to improvement work addressing equity, diversity and inclusion.

Registration is due Aug. 3. Find out more and apply online.
