Patient Safety Morning Report Curriculum Experience: Innovation in Teaching Core Patient Safety Principles

Description

Patient safety curriculums are limited in medical school education. Knowledge about patient safety is critical to our physicians in training to promote future excellence in patient care. Our objectives were to identify lapses in patient safety, discuss the safety domains, identify potential solutions, and develop an innovative way to teach third year medical students about patient safety concepts. In our Pediatric Patient Safety Morning Report curriculum each student had the goal of writing up and discussing a patient case related to a lapse in patient safety using a novel framework. The cases were analyzed using the SAFE framework (S= Safety concern, A= Action taken, F= Failure, linked to safety domain, E= Effects on patient outcome). Two sessions are provided for every 8 week rotation and each session included a short didactic in addition to the case discussions.
