Summary of Theme and Why it is important: Undergraduate and post graduate programs around the world are now including patient safety programming in their educational curriculum.  Engaging learners in patient safety event analyses can result in activated, motivated learners.  Equipping medical educators with tools and approaches to improve the quality of patient safety event analyses benefits learners, healthcare organizations, and patients.

What participants will gain: This workshop will equip medical educators with the knowledge, skills and tools to engage learners in high quality patient safety event analyses that emphasize learning from near misses and events with minimal harm.  In an interactive format, the workshop will address the following: 

Recognizing the importance in partnering with patient safety leaders of the clinical learning environment in building and implementing a patient safety education program
Explaining the advantages of teaching patient safety event analysis using near misses and minimal harm events
Recognizing the elements of high quality and reliable patient safety event analyses for early learners
Applying flow diagrams, cause and effect diagrams, and the rules of causation during patient safety event analyses with early learners
Evaluating actions and learning outcomes resulting from patient safety event analyses including early learners

Who should participate: Medical educators—faculty and program directors --of post-graduate students, residents, and fellows engaged in patient safety who are looking to improve upon their existing medical education programming in patient safety.

Level of workshop:  Intermediate
