I found it very interesting to read Dr. Ackerman's posting "Confessions About Patient Harm" and I've pondered its many implications. At the Jefferson College of Health Sciences (JCHS), we are always thinking about ways of improving how we teach and prepare our students for working inside the myriad of healthcare environments. Our recently launched Interprofessional Education Program involving JCHS, VTC-SOM and Carilion Clinic is designed to encourage students to have open lines of communication with all members of the healthcare team to minimize errors and improve the overall clinical quality of the patient experience. This article, along with many other topics I've been reading in these postings, helps clarify the need and validate that our efforts at the College are both timely and appropriate.
