A recent survey about Quality Grand Rounds revealed that nearly 80 percent of respondents found the monthly presentations pertinent to their jobs. The majority also agreed that the content is presented in a way that is easy to share with peers and colleagues.
Quality Grand Rounds feature monthly presentations focused on clinical quality and safety initiatives that affect outcomes, patient experience and satisfaction. Each session of the classroom-style talks given by employees lasts one hour. Topics vary each month. Past subjects included advanced directives, patient safety rounds and the clinical learning environment.
Improvements for Quality Grand Rounds suggested in the survey included a request for more presentations by interdisciplinary, front-line staff and additional reviews of high-level, systemwide surveys.
“We’re committed to studying these recommendations and making this a better program for all,” said Debbie Lynn, UF Health Quality and Patient Safety quality and accreditation director.
Open to UF Health faculty, staff and students, Quality Grand Rounds are held monthly at 1 p.m. (see dates below) at UF Health Shands Hospital (north campus), Room 6120.
