Quality Improvement

Fellows will all actively participate in quality improvement meetings during their core ICU rotations.  These meetings are utilized to discuss patient safety concerns and possible system processes to improve patient care. 

 As part of their training, the fellows are expected to complete a quality improvement or patient safety project. The project will include: 

  1. analysis and identification of patient safety or quality improvement need
  2. the design of a process to address this need
  3. the implementation of this project in the ICU
  4. evaluation of the penetration of the project
  5. appraisal of the clinical outcome of the project.  

The Program Director will work with the fellow to identify a project and select a mentor. There will be support from the entire multidisciplinary ICU care team, including the medical directors from the ICUs and leadership from hospital administration.
