Program Overview:

In the book Crossing the Quality Chasm (2001), the Institute of Medicine identified six domains of health care quality with the goal of guiding clinicians to deliver safe and evidence-based patient-centered care. Using the STEEPE Framework, this session will give clinicians the tools required to understand and implement these patient-centered concepts. Ranking systems and quality and patient safety measures utilized at the national level will be described and discussed from the clinical perspective of the WOC nurse.

Learning Outcomes:

  • At the conclusion of this presentation participants will be able to identify the six aims for health care quality and safety identified in the STEEPE Framework and implement strategies that address the delivery of high-quality and safe patient care across the care continuum.
