Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS)

6 University Setting Curriculum

The Patient Safety Movement Foundation placed significant energy into the development of Patient Safety Curriculum & Education for healthcare professionals beginning in 2018. We assembled a workgroup to create a core curriculum that can be applied across all health professions. Dr. Steven Scheinman and Dr. Margrit (Peggy) Shoemaker, from Geisinger Commonwealth, Co-Chair of the Patient Safety Movement Foundation’s Patient Safety Curriculum Workgroup. This dedicated group developed a core curricula which addresses the following elements:

  • Ownership of patient safety and quality embedded within the professional identity formation for all health caregivers;
  • Core curriculum common to all health professions. The fundamental elements of the core curriculum will include:
  • Leadership training
  • Interprofessional team-based models
  • Definition of competencies to be achieved, outcomes to be assessed and milestones (which will be specialty-specific) to be identified for each stage of one’s professional career (UME, GME and unsupervised practice, across all professions)
  • Focusing beyond care of the individual patient to address systems of care
