All sessions will be held in the UF Health Facilities Administration Building # 0271, which is located behind East Parking Garages #1 & #10.
An overview of events and a directional map follow:
The workshop includes a ½ day morning session of the basics of patient safety in a “train the trainer” format. Topics include Introduction to Patient Safety, Human Factors Engineering, Teamwork & Communication, Trust, Disclosure, and Handoffs.  The ½ day afternoon session includes break-out sessions with simulations to apply the concepts to your residency training program.  This workshop is geared for clinical faculty, program directors, associate program directors, and chief residents (future chiefs) who are involved in graduate medical education and need to implement a patient safety curriculum into their training program and prepare for the future ACGME CLER visits. The modules are linked to the ACGME Core Competencies.
