Physician Engagement in Quality Improvement: A People-Centred Approach by Accreditation Canada International
Physicians play a critical role in healthcare delivery including the uptake of quality improvements which aim to reduce risks, streamline operations, enhance safety and improve patient experience. In fact, physicians drive 75 to 85 per cent of all quality and cost decisions.
It is therefore critical to engage physicians in quality improvement and to ensure their participation using a people-centred approach that addresses patient needs from the perspective of patients and their families. In fact, a people-centred approach takes into consideration that patients and their families are experts in their own health and care based on their ‘lived’ experience and combines this experience with the clinical expertise of clinicians. The result is a deeper understanding of issues leading to stronger solutions and better results.
This course will address the following topics, providing physicians and healthcare leaders with core competencies to build a culture of patient safety that engages physicians and adopts a people-centred approach to drive quality within their organization.
