Patient Safety Leadership Fellowship
The AHA-NPSF Comprehensive Patient Safety Leadership Fellowship, now entering its eleventh year, is a transformative learning experience dedicated to preparing the next generation of patient safety, quality, and performance improvement leaders. The Fellowship consists of four in-person learning sessions, periodic teleconferences, various self and organizational assessments and individual coaching. The year long program culminates with the completion of an Action Learning Project (ALP) demonstrating the Fellow's ability to apply the concepts learned.
In 2011, program co-sponsors, the American Hospital Association (AHA) and the National Patient Safety Foundation (NPSF) adapted the curriculum model to include components described in the NPSF Lucien Leape Institute's paper Transforming Healthcare: A Safety Imperative. The redesigned curriculum extends the program's traditional focus on core patient safety knowledge, while also providing greater focus of emerging topics and realities driven by changes in the health care environment.
