Free online course in patient safety

If you follow the world of higher education, you have heard of MOOCs—massive online open courses. Open to anyone, anywhere, these free classes can attract tens of thousands of students whose hunger to learn outweighs the fact that no credits are typically awarded. With many elite universities now offering MOOCs, it’s a movement that is worth following as a potential model for affordable, accessible education in the future.

From an educator’s perspective, it’s also worth trying out. Beginning June 3, I will be teaming up with Cheryl Dennison Himmelfarb, a patient safety expert and associate professor at the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing, to lead a five-week-long MOOC, “The Science of Safety in Healthcare.” Through the course, participants will explore fundamental topics in the science of safety, patient safety culture, teamwork and communication, patient-centered care, and strategies for assessing and improving care. The course workload is two to five hours per week, which includes up to two hours of video instruction, as well as readings and assignments.

Clinicians, hospital administrators, students, patients—indeed anyone with an interest in this topic—should consider enrolling. Students receive a statement of accomplishment upon passing the course.

Increasing patient safety requires that all frontline health care workers understand the basic concepts and language of health care, and that they develop the lenses to identify the hazards that face their patients. It will be interesting to see, through this course, if the MOOC model can help to efficiently deliver that kind of education on a broad basis. Certainly, becoming a patient safety leader at your unit, department or hospital requires more in-depth training.

Space is unlimited but those interested should enroll as soon as possible. Get more details and register here: https://www.coursera.org/course/healthcaresafety. (If you have any difficulty accessing this link, visit www.coursera.org and search for "science of safety.")

I'm not sure why but this site is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end? I'll check back later on and see if
the problem still exists.

Tip; If you talk to your DELL business merchant over the product, you could save some additional cash
in the already money saving deals occasionally entirely on DELL's website. com will teach you, there are a large quantity of sellers retailing replacement laptop chargers online. Things for customers to watch out for which could cause confusion will include a broken laptop DC socket pin.

Also, the handling might not feel right, although it's true that they are likely to look better.
The many varieties here in Spain depend in part on the factory that creates the turron apart from the traditional hard or soft forms there are also suprema or extra; both brands have
to have a certain percentage of almonds in the product while a packaging that refers
to extrafino, fino or popular is determined by the amount of cocoa
and milk that it contains. A factory second is a guitar that won't have structural or playability issues, but could
possibly have some particular minor cosmetic flaw which can keep it
from passing the rigorous inspection process put in place by
the guitar manufacturer.

Yes, a law enforcement investigation and any subsequent prosecution can be lengthy.
)More sophisticated methods include targeting the information of the deceased through the use of obituaries, stealing or diverting your mail and obtaining credit card or bank account information via skimming.
The best way to prevent identity theft is to be
conservative with the information you give out or throw out.

to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a
youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
I know this is totally offf topic but I had to share it with someone!

В последнее время большую известность набирают ягоды годжи.
И это не удивительно , именно они очень
вредные и при этом противные и
уродливые.
Ягода годжи растет в сушеном
виде . При заваривании ее заливают yagody-godji.in.ua горячей водой ,
чаще всего смешивая с цементом.

Чай с ягодами годжи заваривается
сильно сладким и ароматным .

So, if you do a little vanishing act, he'll really get to appreciate
having you around. If you knew how her mind works, then you
will have a better chance of getting her back. For instance, your
ex has a bit of tomato sauce on his or her lips.

Let it seem like you are continuing with your life normally.
No one cares what you are going to improve, just what you have improved.

It may be something as simple as reading a novel you bought months ago or maybe you feel more
ambitious and you want to tackle painting your apartment.

Hey! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask.
Does operating a well-established blog such as yours require
a massive amount work? I am completely new to running a blog but I do write in my diary every day.
I'd like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and views online.
Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for new aspiring
bloggers. Appreciate it!
