REPORTING OF CLINICAL ERRORS
B. BAGGER 1,*, H. T. KELLY 2, B. HØRDAM 3

Abstract Content: Improving patient safety is both a national and international priority as millions of patients worldwide suffer injury or death every year due to unsafe care. University College Zealand employs innovative pedagogical
approaches in educational design. Regional challenges related to geographic, social and cultural factors have resulted in a greater emphasis upon digital technology. Attempts to improve patient safety by optimizing students’ competencies in relation to the reporting of clinical errors, has resulted in the development of an interdisciplinary e-learning concept. The program makes it possible for the students to train and test their knowledge and understanding independent of time and place. Data accumulated from the e-learning program will be used to further develop digital learning initiatives.
