This course is designed to build capacity among clinical practitioners and administrators dedicated to becoming leaders for patient safety and quality in their unit, clinic, or care facility in addressing these challenges. The program includes modules aimed at fostering a strong patient safety culture and engaging patients and family as members of the care team. Learners are introduced to tools and methods that will help them learn and act as agents of change in their organization.
