- After reviewing the 2012 QSEN Graduate Competencies, identify a quality/safety issue that you have seen in your practice or clinical setting.
- Explain to your classmates the issue you have identified and the reasons why it is an issue. Include the potential negative outcomes that can arise if the issue is not resolved.
- For example, you notice the provider is not following the American Cancer Society’s recommendation for cervical cancer screening. This issue in quality competency can lead to under-testing, over-testing, increased cost, and increased potential for surgical procedures. These factors can have negative consequences, such as higher risk for preterm labor, or infertility.
- As you create your post, review the knowledge, skills and attitudes of the relevant competency regarding the quality/safety issue you have identified.
