This course will introduce the basic principles of the science and culture of safety in healthcare. The goals for this course are to provide definitions and context of patient safety concepts and terms using a systems approach. We will explore topics in the science of safety, patient safety culture, patient centered care, and team work. With these foundational principles as background, you will explore how to identify and mitigate risks and develop data-driven change efforts, using human factors science and quality improvement methodologies to guide your improvement plans. You will see how the Comprehensive Unit-Based Safety Program (CUSP) provides one model for achieving improved patient safety outcomes. While course content and examples will focus on the acute-care healthcare setting, specifically the hospital, learning will be relevant to other healthcare settings such as extended care, outpatient, and home care settings. The content of this course has been adapted from the Patient Safety Certificate Program offered by the Johns Hopkins Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality as well as the Helene Fuld Fellows Program undergraduate course content from the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing.
This course will introduce the basic principles of the science of safety in healthcare. Course content will be of relevance to members of the healthcare delivery team, including nurses, as well as the healthcare consumers in the general public.
