This continuing education program provides you with the tools you need to keep safety in the long-term spotlight while you carry out your work. Both scientists and practitioners teach in this modular program and provide well-founded, application-oriented training. The nine days of attendance focus on the change of perspective needed to deal with safety in the healthcare sector as well as solutions and best practices. Comparisons from the international sphere also inform the course instruction. Successful concepts from human factor training in aviation are presented, transferred to clinically relevant situations and deepened through simulation training. Participants will also acquire methods to actively shape safety, regardless of their job function or the current structure of their organization. The training concludes with the development of solutions that participants can directly apply to their work environments.

The curriculum is based on the WHO curriculum and highlights specific aspects from the 2020 AHRQ report, Making Health Care Safer III.

Why further your education on patient safety?

The Covid19 crisis has made it clear that optimal care for patients and protection of healthcare workers necessitate constant adaptation to emerging risks. This applies in crises, but also in the daily operations of a complex socio-technical system. Greater patient safety requires a change of perspective away from reactive behavior in response to errors, and toward a forward-looking, solution-oriented approach to risks. Continuing education with a focus on this paradigm change makes it possible to realign views and develop behaviors that can help you work more effectively in the future.

The course aims to deal with risks in a forward-looking, solution-oriented manner.
