Session Description
As an ACGME competency requirement, postgraduate medical trainees in Pulmonary and Critical Care are expected to systematically analyze their practice using quality improvement methods and implement changes with the goal of practice improvement. However, at this time during fellowship, formal training in quality improvement methodology and performance feedback is often incomplete. A dominant barrier to implementation of Quality Improvement Patient Safety Education is lack of faculty expertise. This workshop provides an innovative approach centralizing
quality improvement patient safety training, harnessing local faculty expertise across disciplines to deliver experiential seminar-based education for fellows across specialties covering the following domains:
1) performance of case review and systems-based M&M conference delivery,
2) applying QI tools to assess a local problem and implement improvement,
3) managing change, data interpretation and academic scholarship in QIPS.and success of a QIPS curriculum.

Session Objectives
1. Design a local needs assessment to guide content and educational strategies for a curriculum in Quality Improvement and Patients Safety (QIPS).
2. Apply a stakeholder analysis to identify resources and local expertise at one’s home institution that influence educational delivery strategy.
3. Build goals, objectives, and an assessment plan to track the efficacy and success of a QIPS curriculum.
