Jenn Trallo Schreiber, MSN, MBA, RN, CPPS, Vice President of Clinical Quality and Informatics for Acuity Healthcare shares her experience after completing Safety, Quality, Informatics and Leadership last year.
I recently completed the Safety, Quality, Informatics and Leadership (SQIL) program at Harvard Medical School (HMS). We had completed more than half of the course when the pandemic hit. HMS was able to quickly pivot to an online model and offer our last workshop live virtually. The transition was seamless and well organized while maintaining a rich learning experience.
I was attracted to the SQIL program as I expanded my professional responsibilities to include Informatics. I work for a small network of specialty hospitals as the lead on safety, quality and informatics. The course operationally validated much of the infrastructure I had in place or planned, and provided new ideas for optimization.
What I most appreciated was the global network which allowed for sharing of ideas and experiences. This is a resource I will now have permanently. Working in a small setting, it is critical to be able to connect with colleagues to align with what is working and look for innovative ideas where there are opportunities.
There truly is something for everyone in each SQIL module. I found information immediately useful in my practice after each workshop and module.
Even after 17 years of leadership experience, COVID-19 has been the most humbling professional leadership challenge I’ve faced in my career. The SQIL course helped confirm what I knew and provide new ideas during this difficult time.
Information regarding COVID-19 has rapidly evolved. The content in this article provides a historical snapshot of events surrounding the date of posting.
