Clinically Speaking

January 2018

    Highlighting the important work of the faculty in the University of Colorado School of Medicine to improve care delivery, clinical quality and patient safety.

One of the ways we continue to improve clinical care is by questioning what we think we know. In this issue, you will see how CHCO is working to improve patient safety by examining the science of how we make clinical decisions. At UCH, teams are taking a closer look at the assumptions we make about how we can provide care during a large-scale disaster. And we're featuring two SOM faculty members who model excellence in clinical care by facilitating deeper connections with patients and families. We hope you enjoy reading about your colleagues, and we look forward to hearing how your department is improving clinical care.
