Course Project, Part I: Identify Risk
For the Course Project, you will prepare a quality improvement program. Continuous quality improvement covers many areas. Throughout the course, pay particular attention to what attributes constitute a quality improvement team and what questions this team attempts to answer.
Select one of the following six high-risk areas for your project.
- Long-term care
- Home healthcare
- Emergency room
- Obstetrics and neonatology
Research the area you selected using at least three scholarly sources. Identify and classify all of the risks associated with these areas. Describe the nature of the risks to patients, healthcare professionals, and healthcare facilities. You may develop a table to present this information, create a Word document report, or a PowerPoint presentation. On a separate page, cite all sources using the APA format.
