ABOUT THE PATIENT SAFETY FELLOWSHIP

The Patient Safety Fellowship prepares recent and current interdisciplinary healthcare-related field, graduate students to apply emerging methods and strategies in implementation science, team-based problem-solving, and continuous quality improvement for healthcare settings. The Fellowship is a program of the Jewish Healthcare Foundation (JHF), Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative (PRHI), and Health Careers Futures (HCF).

During eight weekly sessions in June and July, Fellows learn about the Foundation’s signature QI methodology, Perfecting Patient CareSM, and they look across contexts to understand how existing quality improvement projects are successful. The 2019 Fellows had the unique opportunity to work with Pennsylvania Perinatal Quality Collaborative members to analyze processes and identify contextual factors that impact the application, spread, and sustainability of comprehensive perinatal programs in the Commonwealth.
