Team Teaching • October 17, 2013 • Online
With a demanding health care environment and sharp focus on quality, it has never been more important to understand how to achieve better quality care for radiology departments. However, we must measure quality for many customers including patients, referring providers and others. How do we show that we are providing, monitoring and improving quality service in radiology? This lecture will describe the rationale and methods for using collective learning tools for enhancing radiology quality. We will team-teach professionalism assessment using a radiology case scenario.
