Critical Care, Patient Safety and Quality, and Research - MEDI923

This unit provides focused learning on the patient safety and quality aspects of health systems, framed within the clinical context of Critical Care and Anaesthetics. The unit will explore evaluation of system-wide safety interventions and high-quality care; medical error; open disclosure and incident management; digital technology in healthcare, and the role of systems, people and services in the development and delivery of resilient healthcare. This learning is integrated with advanced learning about research methodologies: students will select from one of three streams of quantitative methods, qualitative methods, or clinical research depending upon the nature of their chosen Research Project they have selected to undertake in Stage 2 of the Program. In the unit, students will submit a draft project plan and literature review, as relevant to their chosen Research Project.
