The Peer Network for Advancing Equity through Quality and Safety is a program offered by the AMA Center for Health Equity in collaboration with the Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and The Joint Commission (TJC). In this free CME series, Peer Network faculty and guest speakers present a wide range of topics with the goal of helping learners integrate equity into their quality and safety infrastructures to ultimately help improve health outcomes for historically marginalized populations.
In July 2019, Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) launched a pivotal collaboration to develop a new system-wide model for reducing health inequities throughout clinical operations, quality and safety infrastructure. This led to the design, testing and implementation of a new quality, safety and equity framework that serves as the foundation for the AMA Peer Network for Advancing Equity through Quality and Safety. The framework merges patient-centered approaches to quality and safety of care with robust structural analyses of racism and equity to support an overall mission of delivering equitable high-quality care to every single patient.
The Advancing Equity through Quality and Safety Peer Network Series is a set of free, online CME activities designed for medical professionals, health system executives, Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) leaders, patient leads, and anyone involved in quality improvement and patient safety.
This free CME series provides a Getting Grounded and Introduction section as well as lessons on five focus areas. Completing the Getting Grounded section will ground learners in the history of how inequities arose and persist in medicine and will define common terms relating to racial justice and health equity. Focus Areas 2-5 will be added to this page in the coming months.
