AMEE is forming a new SIG for health educators interested in optimizing educational programming in patient safety (PS) and quality improvement (QI). The SIG will provide a forum for discussions, masterclasses, and webinars on topics such as:
• Essential concepts
• Identifying barriers and solutions for engagement
• Evaluating success
• Building a non-punitive culture
We are currently in the process of organizing the group and planning an initial webinar. To learn about upcoming meetings and webinars in 2020-2021, please email [email protected] with your name, title, and organization and we’ll be in touch as more information becomes available. Thank you for your interest.
SIG Organizers: Prof Trudie Roberts, Leeds Institute of Medical Education, UK; Dr. Kevin Weiss, Dr. Robin Newton, and Ms. Robin Wagner, Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education, USA
This is a very relevant development, especially with the COVID -19 pandemic. The teaching of patient safety and quality improvement is not uniform in medical education and can at times be ad-hoc and may seem irrelevant in settings where the drive to do things is to meet government or organizational targets.
Initiative in patient safety and quality improvement has proven to have a positive impact on patient care even during this pandemic. This SIG in Patient Safety and Quality Improvement should provide a forum for educators and researchers to discuss and develop a community of practice.
