HSPSC GSK Patient Safety Day Success

March 6, 2007 was designated as GSK Patient Safety Day. On this day over 500 students from the Duke and UNC Schools of Medicine and Nursing came together to learn about patient safety. The day-long health care team training activity included interactive team training methods such as simulation and role play. This grant, led by Dr. Dzau of Duke University Health System and Dr. Roper of the University of North Carolina Health Care System, was made possible by GlaxoSmithKline. This was the culmination of a year-long planning process conducted by multidisciplinary teams from both universities.  The lessons learned are now being integrated into the second year of the program.
