in the Health Care Industry: The Patient Safety Education Project
the governing council meeting at the Institute of Medicine for the
Patient Safety Education Project
In May 2006,
the Patient Safety Education Project (PSEP) convened a meeting of
its Governing Council, hosted by Dr. Harvey Fineberg, President
of the Institute of Medicine (IoM), in Washington, DC.
The goal of
the meeting was to complete the process of buy-in on the overall
program design and to build consensus on the content of the core
curriculum that PSEP is creating.
Members of the
Governing Council included patient safety pioneers, funders, and
thought leaders of major national stakeholder groups including:
education, accreditation groups, physician, nurses, healthcare organizations,
plan purchasers, international leaders, and patients/consumers.
of the Governing Council considered the prototype curriculum and
program design, and potential contributing curricular materials
that were presented by the Core Team. They also examined the business
case for their and others' involvement in PSEP. They gave a unified
endorsement for the project. Pictured is Linda Emanuel, MD, PhD, presenting the prototype curriculum.
The Core Team
is pictured. Left to right, members include: Denys Lau, PhD, John R. Combes, MD, Tim Shaw, PhD, Linda Emanuel, MD, PhD, Joel Shalowitz, MD, MBA, FACP, and Martin J. Hatlie, Esq. They have since designed an educational framework and compiled the contributing
curricular materials to it. Based upon feedback from the Project's
Advisory Group, the Core Team is currently refining the framework.
