The GME Office at IU School of Medicine is involved with the ACGME’s Pathway Leaders Patient Safety Collaborative, which includes nine medical centers tasked with initiating event analyses including early resident and fellow learners beginning in July 2018. These analyses provide a means for all training programs to meet many of the new ACGME requirements for patient safety education and are a method to improve patient care at all of our institutions.
Through the Collaborative, our trainees’ experiences will help shape best practices for patient safety for residency and fellowship programs throughout the nation. At IU School of Medicine we plan to engage all residents and fellows on campus in safety analyses important in their own clinical areas.
At this time, 16 trainees have participate in patient safety event analyses, whether as presenters or mentors:
- Internal Medicine intern presenters: Matthew Glick, Samantha Kay, Ahmed Kiani, Andrew McDonald, Omar Salman, Zunera Tariq, and Kevin Zhang have all completed a safety analysis presentation.
- Internal Medicine & Medicine/Pediatrics resident mentors: Previous presenters have been mentored by Sean DeLacey (Med/Peds), Mary Erickson (Med/Peds), Chris Green (Med/Peds), Jennifer King (Internal Medicine), Michelle Morris (Internal Medicine), Jonathan Prest (Internal Medicine), and Nay Seif (Internal Medicine)
- Emergency Medicine resident mentors: John (Jake) Jacobs and Matthew Scott are currently mentoring PGY-1 Emergency Medicine residents preparing to give safety analysis presentations in January 2019.
