Department Chair's Message

Teri ChenotGreetings –           

Quality and patient safety has been at the forefront in healthcare for the past 20 years with the landmark Institute of Medicine (1999) report, To Err is Human. More recent reports (James, 2013) have provided increasingly alarming statistics. The spotlight on medical errors and the need to improve the healthcare system has created an emergence in the field of healthcare quality and safety professionals. While much work in the past two decades has been accomplished to make improvements in the system, much work remains to be done. Jacksonville University’s Healthcare Quality and Safety programs were developed to provide an innovative, interprofessional learning experience for healthcare professionals to serve in healthcare quality and safety leadership and research positions within healthcare organizations. In so doing, the level of clinical excellence can be raised, medical error prevention can be addressed, and health outcomes on the global level can be improved.
