One program is a five-day, in-person course for which three program dates have been scheduled, and the other is an online offering. Both programs will introduce and provide instruction for using tools and concepts designed to help patient safety professionals change behaviors and shift culture within their organizations.

The institute’s five-day certification programs will be conducted in Baltimore on the following dates: March 2-6, May 4-8 and September 14-18. This course offers opportunities to earn 29.5 continuing nursing education credits, explore 24 patient safety modules and even test out strategies along with their peers in a learning environment. The online option covers 13 patient safety modules that participants can study at their own pace and offers a chance to earn 18.5 medical education credits.
