We are pleased to announce the next offerings of the Royal College’s ASPIRE faculty 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.
