Langlois S.

Health profession educators are prioritizing integration of patient safety and quality improvement concepts into their curricula. In this study, interprofessional groups of students were paired with a health mentor—a patient with a chronic illness—and through interviews and reflection students identified various safety issues that affected their mentor's health. These included the importance of care coordination and patient-centered care.
