Abstract

Quality Improvement in health care has been a driver for promotion of patient safety. Yet, research shows that harm occurs every day in our health systems, incidents of harm and/or near misses continue to rise at exponential rates, measurable targets for improvements are not being met, and opportunities to implement and test best practice models has been limited even with ongoing education and resource allocations.  Canadian Patient Safety Institute, a leader in developing educational models and tools for curricula in Canada will be used as a benchmark of novel approaches to health care curricula development and implementation. Frameworks/Models, such as the Vincent Framework, used in formal and informal teaching for quality improvement and patient safety will be reviewed. An international analysis of formal and informal educational frameworks used in nursing and health care professional curricula will provide insight into the impact and/or efficacy of quality improvement results and the influence of health system environment.
