Promoting Patient Safety is a set of three half-day sessions that show how effective teamwork in health care delivery can have an immediate positive impact on patient safety. Students receive a lecture introducing patient safety in an interprofessional context before working as part of an interdisciplinary team on an enquiry based learning exercise to think critically and problem solve, each student taking responsibility for what their team achieves. Enquiry based learning encourages student collaboration, fosters directed learning and aids reflection on the learning process. This exercise culminates with teams of students presenting their findings.
