Pathologists have long been deeply invested in the quality of the care we provide. However, the increasing burden of clinical care, daily operations, and regulatory compliance have challenged the maintenance of a safe and high quality care environment. In parallel to increasing clinical demands, the health care community has become sharply focused on patient safety, with many major organizations calling on the laboratory to adapt to a culture of reliability, accountability, and transparency. Despite these shifts in the healthcare landscape, little to no specific tools exist to guide anatomic pathologists on exactly how to investigate medical errors and carry out quality improvement initiatives. The course is heavily case-based and interactive, utilizing a set of validated tools from the quality and safety literature and practical pathology-specific applications to facilitate learning.
