Health Professions Education: A Bridge to Quality (Quality Chasm Series) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Institute of Medicine study Crossing the Quality Chasm (2001) recommended that an interdisciplinary summit be held to further reform of health professions education in order to enhance quality and patient safety. "Health Professions Education: A Bridge to Quality" is the follow up to that summit, held in June 2002, where 150 participants across disciplines and occupations developed ideas about how to integrate a core set of competencies into health professions education. These core competencies include patient-centered care, interdisciplinary teams, evidence-based practice, quality improvement, and informatics. This book recommends a mix of approaches to health education improvement, including those related to oversight processes, the training environment, research, public reporting, and leadership. Educators, administrators, and health professionals can use this book to help achieve an approach to education that better prepares clinicians to meet both the needs of patients and the requirements of a changing health care system.

Book News Annotation:

This report from a committee that participated in the June 2002 Institute of Medicine's Health Professions Education Summit stresses the importance of collaboration across the professions to understand the nature of challenges facing health professions education. The report looks at implications of these challenges for educational reform, describes core competencies needed by professionals, and makes recommendations for reform. There is no subject index.
