Education Special Interest Group
The Role of Quality and Safety in Neurologic Training

Monday, October 17, 2016
3:30-5:30 PM
Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel
Room: Grand Ballroom 1&2

Since the Institute of Medicine report "To Err is Human", quality and safety has been a hot topic in medicine, and there has been increasing involvement by neurologic training programs and trainees in assessing and (hopefully) improving quality of neurologic care and patient safety. This year’s education Special Interest Group will discuss the current stance of our regulatory bodies with regard to training residents and fellows in quality and safety; review specifics of integration of quality and safety education in neurology training programs; discuss how to leverage institutional resources for quality and safety projects in residency; and discuss the role of the electronic health record in teaching quality and safety.
