Pathways into Quality Improvement and Patient Safety
Quality improvement and patient safety span all areas of medicine and healthcare. This is a public health and ethical issue given that medical errors can result in unnecessary deaths, injuries, and expenses. As medical knowledge and technology continue to advance at a rapid pace, it is important that all healthcare providers continue to improve their quality of care and maintain patient safety at the forefront of their practice. As a leader in quality and safety, Baylor College of Medicine is uniquely positioned to begin the regional dialogue regarding quality improvement and patient safety strategies for all learners.
