Journal Club

The Center for Healthcare Delivery Science & Innovation’s Journal Club aims to promote collaborative evaluation of current literature around patient quality and safety, risk management, clinical innovation, infection control, quality performance improvement, and healthcare informatics. The goals of Journal Club are to promote scholarship through critical evaluation of the current literature, initiate discussion around application of current literature to UCM, promote collaboration between departments by providing a variety of perspectives around the topic of interest, and to promote a culture of scholarship throughout the Office of Clinical Effectiveness, lead by our Healthcare Delivery Science & Innovation team. For more information, review the Scholarship Introduction Powerpoint.
