Quality is job #1. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) reports have provided important perspectives for improving the quality and safety of health care. Today, their work guides the restructuring of health care systems. Thus it is imperative that nurses and students be equipped with this knowledge to improve patient safety.

Anita Finkelman and Carole Kenner have condensed the IOM reports into a unique user's manual that is relevant to every nurse. During this webinar, Finkelman and Kenner will highlight the IOM's five healthcare core competencies and share teaching-learning strategies.
