Quality Improvement Opportunities

Here are a couple of cool QI opportunities that can help you earn some $$$ as well.

1. AHRQ’s WebM&M
Submit cases of medical error/ patient safety to AHRQ’s WebM&M series. These cases are completely anonymous (no PHI, or information identifying the patient, institution or yourself). If selected, an expert will write a commentary on your case, and you will receive $300. Downside is that your identity is never revealed and you do not get credit/ a publication.
There is no strict deadline for this, but we never know when it will stop.
Please continue to report safety reports internally as well.

2. ACGME’s Back to Bedside Initiative
This aims to empower trainees to develop transformative projects that combat burnout by fostering meaning in their learning environments and engaging on a deeper level with patients. The purpose of Back to Bedside is to support the development of innovative ideas, clinical practices, or policies that will improve physician well-being and foster a sense of meaning in work while increasing the time physicians have to spend in the care of their patients.
