Creating a framework to integrate residency program and medical center approaches to quality improvement and patient safety training

Chen A, Wolpaw BJ, Vande Vusse LK, et al. Acad Med. 2021;96(1):75-82.

Quality improvement and patient safety (QIPS) training is increasingly being incorporated into formal medical education. This article describes an integrated framework for QIPS training for internal medicine residents focused on four areas: (1) culture of safety, (2) strategies for investigating events and tracking improvements, (3) reporting and presenting events, and (4) improvement work. This specialty-agnostic framework allows for integration across graduate medical education (GME) specialties and can serve as a model for other institutions.
