Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality. November 11-13, 2019; Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, MD.
In this professional development program, participants will have direct access to Johns Hopkins providers who have successfully implemented patient safety strategies. The goal of the program is to provide learners with knowledge and insights about how to improve safety and quality at their own organizations.

Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation. September 5–6, 2018; Royal Palms Resort and Spa, Phoenix, AZ.
Anesthesia is a high-risk activity that has achieved safety improvements. This conference explored perioperative medication safety through discussions about drug shortages, toxicity management, patient harm reduction, and policy development. Recommendations for improvement were generated at the event.

Canadian Patient Safety Institute.
The TeamSTEPPS program was developed to support effective communication and teamwork skills in various health care settings. This site supports the Canadian TeamSTEPPS initiative. The program will prepare participants to implement and sustain TeamSTEPPS training and concepts throughout their organizations.

A descriptive study of morbidity and mortality conferences and their conformity to medical incident analysis models: results of the morbidity and mortality conference improvement study, phase 1.
Aboumatar HJ, Blackledge CG Jr, Dickson C, Heitmiller E, Freischlag J, Pronovost PJ. Am J Med Qual. 2007;22:232-238.
Morbidity and mortality ("M&M") conferences are standard components of training programs and are mandated by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. Despite their ubiquity, a prior study of internal medicine and surgery conferences found that errors were discussed infrequently (particularly in internal medicine); thus, housestaff were being denied an important patient safety learning opportunity. In this study, researchers interviewed conference leaders from 12 departments at an academic hospital and found that only a minority identified patient safety and quality improvement as an important learning objective for the conference. Conferences generally did not include recommended elements for analyzing and learning from errors (e.g., assigning responsibility for follow-up). A prior article described how one residency program redesigned M&M to focus on patient safety and learning from errors.

Development and evaluation of a 1-day interclerkship program for medical students on medical errors and patient safety.
Moskowitz E, Veloski JJ, Fields SK, Nash DB. Am J Med Qual. 2007;22:13-17.
Early education of students in the health professions is a recommended component of establishing a culture of safety. This study describes the effect of a patient safety seminar delivered to third-year medical students, which included lectures and workshop sessions. The students' attitudes and knowledge about patient safety issues improved as a result. Prior research has also found that brief curricula can increase patient safety awareness among medical students, but without reinforcement, this knowledge may deteriorate over time.

Teaching medical students about medical errors and patient safety: evaluation of a required curriculum.
Halbach JL, Sullivan LL. Acad Med. 2005;80:600-606.
This study reports survey findings both before and after implementation of a new educational curriculum. The patient safety curriculum described targeted third-year medical students with a 4-hour session that included readings, interactive discussion, and videotaped standardized patient encounters. Findings suggested that the experience was useful and increased awareness about the topic area as desired. The authors discuss educational strategies, such as case-based teaching and patient safety conferences, which can foster greater and more consistent safety education for medical students throughout their training.

Feinstein AR, Niebyl JR. Arch Intern Med. 1971;128:774-780.
This study reports and analyzes findings of traditional clinicopathologic conferences (CPC) from Massachusetts General Hospital. By comparing the distribution of topics and the accuracy in making correct diagnoses over several decades, the authors explore one of the oldest forms of reasoning. The cases reviewed were classified both by clinical topic and error type to better understand the trends and patterns seen in diagnostic failures. The authors discuss the teaching role employed by CPC and the potential for computers to play an integral role in the diagnostic reasoning process.
