The Patient Safety and Healthcare Quality masters program is a fully online, interdisciplinary degree offered by Johns Hopkins University. It is a first-of-its-kind collaboration between the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Johns Hopkins School of Nursing and the Armstrong
Institute for Patient Safety and Quality. It combines coursework from JHU’s top ranked schools and the Armstrong Institute’s pioneering advances in patient safety—educating students in the transformative mechanisms and evidence-based protocols that reduce preventable patient harm and improve clinical outcomes.
The year 2000 was the birth of the patient safety movement. Its focus: to end preventable harm and improve patient outcomes and experiences in health care. Since then, there has been groundbreaking work and innovation across the continuum of care.
Advances in the science of safety have allowed meaningful discoveries that highlight defective processes. This movement has much more to accomplish and great potential to drive further widespread advances in safety and quality.
