Abstract:
Students and faculty in clinical practice settings may witness substandard care and unsafe practice. Recognizing the importance of client safety, we have established a collaborative team consisting of representatives from clinical agencies and our educational institution to explore this issue. The collaborative team members identified that a consistent and systematic approach to the effective reporting of unsafe clinical practice did not exist. We identified that while faculty and students were able to determine the appropriateness of client care, they did not have a process in place to report concerns in a sensitive and productive way. In order to facilitate safe client care, our collaborative team is developing a tool to assist students and faculty in this decision making and communication process. We believe this will support the culture of client safety and quality improvement in both academic and clinical. This process will enhance students' learning, facilitate the development of critical thinking skills and heighten awareness of public safety issues. This is a work in progress and our presentation will be an opportunity to dialogue with our education colleagues about their experiences. This dialogue will facilitate development of a set of guiding principles and a decision making tool.
