Educational Objectives:
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to: • Evaluate and apply effective clinical, educational and research strategies for improved quality, patient safety, and value in academic medical centers that are aligned with changes in the external environment (e.g. regulatory and policy, accreditation requirements, etc.) Design effective strategies for building team based and interprofessional approaches to clinical quality improvement. • Implement initiatives, courses or training programs that integrate concepts of quality improvement, patient safety, care delivery transformation, and value into health professions education across the continuum, including undergraduate, advanced learners, and practicing clinicians.
 
Needs Assessment/Practice Gaps:
A planning committee comprised of AAMC staff, members from the AAMC Integrating Quality Steering Committee, and representatives from each of the partner health professions’ organizations planned the meeting. The high-level themes and keynote speakers were identified based on feedback from this group, evaluations from previous IQ Meetings, and national trends in quality, patient safety and performance improvement. Much of the content for this meeting is driven by a call for abstracts for presentations, workshops and posters, which were evaluated and selected by the planning committee.
 
Credit Designation Statement:
The University of California, San Diego School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 10.75 credits AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Cultural and Linguistic Competency:
 
Cultural and Linguistic Competency:
California Assembly Bill 1195 requires continuing medical education activities with patient care components to include curriculum in the subjects of cultural and linguistic competency. It is the intent of the bill, which went into effect on July 1, 2006, to encourage physicians and surgeons, CME providers in the state of California, and the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to meet the cultural and linguistic concerns of a diverse patient population through appropriate professional development. The planners, speakers and authors of this CME activity have been encouraged to address issues relevant in their topic area.
