Description of CME Course
As long as human beings provide health care, mistakes and errors will occur. However, organizations can reduce the likelihood of such mistakes and errors and limit their impact by fostering a culture of safety. This is an environment that encourages people to speak up about safety concerns, makes it safe to talk about mistakes and errors, and encourages learning from these events. This course focuses on how organizations can create and foster a culture of safety.
The IHI Open School offers a range of online courses created by world-renowned faculty in improvement capability, patient safety, triple aim for populations, person- and family-centered care, leadership, and quality, cost, and value. Each course takes approximately 1 to 2 hours to complete and consists of three to five lessons that end with assessments.
Learners must complete the course and achieve a passing score of 75% on each post-lesson assessment to receive a certificate of completion.
