Abstract [en]

To be powerful, improvement of quality and safety (IQS) should be performed by all involved professionals in cooperation. Here we describe how we have designed and implemented improvement of quality and safety as a recurring interprofessional learning objective to all programmes at The Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS), Linköping University, Sweden. This initiative was strongly argued and implemented in close collaboration with the County Council of Östergötland (CCO), the main provider of health care in the region.

 

The Faculty of Health Sciences has experience of interprofessional education since more than 20 years, which we and external evaluations have found to be successful. In addition, all our educational programs are based on Problem-Based Learning (PBL) throughout the whole curricula. The procedures for IQS-work have great similarities to the processes of PBL, and the research process, hence, the implementation of IQS are easily acknowledged by the students, faculty and clinical staff.

 

Since 2008, students from all our undergraduate programs learn IQS-methodology during their first semester as individual projects, as part of the first module of interprofessional learning. Now the partnership with the CCO has offered opportunities to include practice of IQS in clinical settings. In close collaboration with the staff from primary health care centers or clinical wards, interprofessional student teams have identified areas of quality and safety improvement. These were e.g. i) accessibility to acute care, ii) routines regarding the discharge process at a surgery ward, or iii) hygiene aspects in primary health care The suggested conclusions and interventions were received, discussed and developed at the clinics.
