Welcome to the Center for Patient Safety
Our vision at the University of Miami – Jackson Memorial Hospital Center for Patient Safety is to lead the healthcare community in creating a culture of patient safety. To achieve this incredibly important goal, we engage in three major activities: simulation-based medical education, research to advance the body of knowledge in patient safety, and sharing our findings with our colleagues.
Simulation-based medical education has been shown to improve providers’ ability to handle critical situations and lead to more favorable patient outcomes. In our state of the art operating room and ICU, we re-enact common and rare medical events, observe and film trainees’ performance, and review the scenarios together in targeted debriefing sessions. We are building momentum and making strides in the world of patient safety.
