MSN-5200 - Patient Safety in Nursing

Semester Credits: 3 Weeks: 8

Patient safety focuses on the minimization of errors in treatment and the prevention of adverse effects associated with patient care. In this course, students will be introduced to relevant theories, principles, practices, and operational issues as they relate to patient safety and quality. Patient safety problems and high-risk contexts for error occurrence will be explored, and appropriate tools and evidence-based practices to address these issues will be determined. Students will also examine external drivers and policy initiatives related to quality and patient safety improvement in nursing, including accreditation, and performance. Through the utilization of error theory and systems thinking, as well as methods of risk assessment, students will be challenged to consider the roles of various stakeholders in patient safety.
