Teaching Strategies for Quality Improvement and Patient Safety

Led by:

Charlotte Wills, MD and Brent Kobashi, MD

Knowledge and training in quality improvement and patient safety (QI and PS) does not always lead to effective teaching of these topics. Most publications regarding QI and PS education revolve around traditional didactics, lectures, and project-based learning. While these approaches are effective for some learners and in select situations, other innovative strategies may be needed to combat barriers to reaching learners.

These barriers include:

  • QI/PS viewed as a boring topic
  • finding time to teach QI/PS
  • difficulty in selecting or completing a project
  • resistance to change
  • professional identity
  • reaching learners of different levels or professions

Some of these barriers can be overcome by using innovative teaching strategies to engage learners and inspire ongoing interest in QI/PS. This workshop aims to improve the teaching skills of medical professionals passionate about QI and PS.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Select or design a strategy that will engage learners in the topics of QI/PS.
  • Identify teaching strategies that improve attitudes or highlight professional responsibilities toward QI/PS.
  • Select a strategy that aligns best with a variety of QI/PS topics.

This workshop is for any faculty member who would like to improve their teaching skills and gain new strategies to effectively teach QI/PS.
