The Royal College’s 2017 ASPIRE Courses: Quebec City & Ottawa

We are pleased to announce the next offerings of the Royal College’s ASPIRE facultyFlyer_ ASPIRE Workshops_2017_ENG_v2 development certificate program, developed in partnership with the Canadian Patient Safety Institute and Choosing Wisely Canada. Two workshops will be held on:

  • May 29 – 31, in Quebec City at Université Laval  (French)
  • November 28 – December 1, in Ottawa (English)

ASPIRE is an immersive, four-day national train-the-trainer program for medical educators, physicians and residents interested in educating others about patient safety, quality improvement (QI) and/or resource stewardship. Upon completion of the 4-day program, participants leave with an educational plan in hand. Many past participants have successfully implemented their educational plan within 6 months of returning home.

Given that patient safety, QI and resource stewardship competencies have been explicitly integrated throughout the new CanMEDS 2015 physician competency framework, ASPIRE addresses a critical need by helping institutions to implement patient safety, quality improvement and/or resource stewardship training and curricula locally.
