AQSISP notches another successful quality and safety training session

The 2015-2016 Advanced Quality & Safety Improvement Science Program (AQSISP) at Christiana Care concluded in May with 15 presentations by physicians and clinical leaders, including an advanced practice nurse, pharmacist and an administrative leader who completed the course, which was designed to  provide advanced knowledge and skills in teaching improvement and safety.

This program embraces a train-the-trainer model that focuses on Christiana Care faculty — professionals who already possess the requisite quality improvement and safety skills — with a  view to transform them into first rate instructors and teachers.

The AQSISP aims to develop skills to teach and to lead the incorporation of continuous performance improvement and safety principles into all education curricula and into clinical practice by working with the entire Christiana Care health care community, thereby improving the quality of care we deliver,” said Robert M. Dressler, M.D., MBA, Quality and Safety Officer, Academic and Medical Affairs.

“At the final meeting at the John H. Ammon Medical Education Center, each of the 15 participants presented their projects — its aims, background, interventions tested (or implementation plan), results (where available), and perhaps most importantly, the discussion and conclusions (lessons learned),” he said.
