Patient Safety Curriculum National Patient Safety Foundation
The NPSF Patient Safety Curriculum is a 10-module, online course intended to equip the learner with the foundational knowledge necessary to understand the context, key principles, and competencies associated with the discipline of patient safety, and how these tenets and skills are applied to everyday practice. It takes the learner through the history of the patient safety movement, describes the science and disciplines used in this work, presents current best practices, and outlines strategies for overcoming barriers to safe care. The curriculum modules are aligned with educational standards for patient safety competencies and are anchored by didactic audio/PowerPoint lectures given by NPSF board members and members of the quizzes to focus learners on key patient safety principles. This knowledge is imperative for those working in, or in partnership with, the health care system of today.
