Surgical Care Improvement Project (SCIP)
The Surgical Care Improvement Project (SCIP) is a national quality partnership of organizations interested in improving surgical care by significantly reducing surgical complications. Partners in SCIP believe that a meaningful reduction in surgical complications depends on surgeons, anesthesiologists, perioperative nurses, pharmacists, infection control professionals, and hospital executives working together to intensify their commitment to making surgical care improvement a priority.
If you were the administrator in charge of reducing errors related to surgery, what strategies would you implement that enable the different professionals (i.e., surgeons, anesthesiologists, preoperative nurses, pharmacists, infection control professionals, and hospital executives) to receive training? What kind of training and development activities would you implement to change the culture of the hospital in regard to reducing patient care errors? What other HRM activities could be impacted by the training and collaboration? You will create a thread in response to the provided prompt for each forum. Each Surgical Care Improvement Project (SCIP) thread must be at least 600 words and demonstrate course-related knowledge. Each thread and reply must also include a biblical integration and at least 2 peer-reviewed source citations in current APA format in addition to the text.
