This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Conditions||medical education, patient safety, educational safety curriculum, surgical resident|
|Treatments||education - bips course, formal safety curriculum, ongoing evaluation and feedback|
|Sponsor||The University of Texas Health Science Center, Houston|
|Start date||February 2014|
|End date||August 2015|
|Trial size||58 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT02401711, HSC-MS-14-0073|
The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of two methods, safety curriculum in addition to online training alone, for teaching patient safety to surgery residents. Despite multiple studies evaluating educational safety curricula, the best methods for teaching residents about patient safety is unknown. It is hypothesized that empowering surgery residents to actively engage in behaviors to increase patient safety may lead to a higher quality perioperative care and communication.
