Events & Meetings: ACOG’s “Quality and Safety for Leaders in Women’s Health Care” Course Now Meets MOC Requirements
ACOG’s well-regarded postgraduate course “Quality and Safety for Leaders in Women’s Health Care,” being held in Scottsdale, Arizona, October 27 – 29, 2016, has recently been approved to meet the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG) Part IV Improvement in Medical Practice requirements for Maintenance of Certification (MOC) as a Quality Improvement activity.
This course focuses on reducing medical errors and improving the quality and safety of care we provide to our patients. Over three days and approximately 18 hours of contact time, the course addresses a wide variety of topics related to patient safety. The main topics addressed include:
- Importance of standardization
- Methods to change organizational culture
- Peer review protections
- Impact of human factors
- Clinical performance improvement tools
- Simulations and drills to improve patient safety
These key topics in patient safety and quality are taught through a combination of traditional lectures, group team building and simulation exercises, and discussions around adverse event scenarios. The course also emphasizes teamwork and communication, which are the cornerstones of building a strong patient safety culture within clinical care settings. Run by director John Keats, MD, the course includes an expert faculty that includes ob-gyn generalists, a maternal fetal medicine specialist, a health law attorney, and a midwife.
