The Center for Quality and Patient Safety
The Center for Quality and Patient Safety was established by the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery in order to perform research and educate professionals and patients on the importance of quality and patient safety in the delivery of healthcare. The Center initiates and conducts various research projects, patient education projects and professional development programs in the areas of quality and patient safety.
The Center has assumed a leadership role both within the medical center and on a national scale to address issues of quality and safety. Research and dissemination of information through peer education are central to maintaining a leadership role among healthcare organizations which allows clinicians inside and outside the institution to benefit from the programs and knowledge being developed at NYU Langone Medical Center and the Hospital for Joint Diseases.
Mission: To use research and education to advance the quality and safety of care for all patients.
Vision: To be recognized as a global leader in quality and patient safety for musculoskeletal care.
