[NOTE: CANCELLED]: ERC: Theory in quality improvement and patient safety education: A review of findings and discussion of future directions

Please note: This event has been cancelled due to COVID-19

In this session Dr. Joanne Goldman will report on findings from a scoping review of the use of theory in quality improvement and patient safety education. She will describe the range of learning and social science theories that have been used, and how they have been used in the design and/or study of these education programs. Joanne also plans to share insights about the limitations of the studies included in the review, and discuss as a group, opportunities to further develop theoretically informed quality improvement and patient safety health professions education research and practice. 

Dr. Joanne Goldman is a C-QuIPS Scientist, Cross-Appointed Researcher at The Wilson Centre, and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine, University of Toronto. Her primary research interest is using sociologically informed theoretical and methodological perspectives to study quality improvement and patient safety education and practice.

The Education Research Community (ERC) is an interdisciplinary mix of aspiring education researchers made up of administrators, educators, and clinical teachers from varied roles, professions, and experience levels with research. ERC supports a space for academic freedom and the opportunity to discuss diverse viewpoints and ideas from researchers and practitioners, including perspectives that may differ from or challenge commonly held assumptions and positions. ERC is free of charge to anyone who may want to attend.
