ABOUT THE PATIENT SAFETY FELLOWSHIP

The Patient Safety Fellowship prepares recent and current 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 will 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 will also have the unique opportunity to work with the newly developed Pennsylvania Perinatal Quality Collaborative members to analyze processes and identify contextual factors that impact the application, spread, and sustainability of their comprehensive perinatal programs in the Commonwealth. By interviewing select sites throughout Pennsylvania, Fellows will help in identifying and recognizing the winner of the 2019 Patient Safety Award for Perinatal Care.
