In an effort to comply with the ACGME’s Clinical Learning Environment Review (CLER) accreditation requirements, the LSU School of Medicine New Orleans requires all House Officers to participate in patient safety or quality improvement projects throughout their training. (PLEASE NOTE: EACH HOUSE OFFICER DOES NOT REQUIRE AN INDIVIDUAL PROJECT – collaborative and interprofessional efforts are encouraged.)
Please use the EQuIP office’s Project Request Form from the Enhancing Quality Improvement for Patients office to provide project-specific information for the LSUSOM EQuIP database. You can access the form here: Project_Review_Spreadsheet_2016
Projects are due by 9/15/16 and will be tracked annually.
The Project Review Form can also be found year-round on the EQuIP website at http://www.medschool.lsuhsc.edu/medical_education/graduate/EQuIP/default.aspx. Please contact the EQuIP office if you have any questions, and thank you for your commitment to quality and safety at LSU School of Medicine.
The Enhancing Quality Improvement for Patients (EQuIP) Program at the LSU School of Medicine is an institution-wide initiative to engage residents and fellows in systems-based quality improvement programs. In cooperation with faculty supervisors and mentors, the EQuIP program will empower the House Officers of the LSU School of Medicine to contribute to scholarly activity and the implementation of clinical quality improvement initiatives at our affiliated training institutions, with the goal of improving outcomes for patients and inculcating a culture of quality improvement and patient safety.
