Congratulations to our VAQS colleagues on their recent publication of SQUIRE-EDU guidelines (click to read more)!
SQUIRE 2.0 (Standards for Quality Improvement Reporting Excellence) are a set of guidelines that help standardize reports about quality, safety, and value of healthcare. SQUIRE-EDU was created as an extension of SQUIRE 2.0 to help expand educational science by increasing the completeness, transparency, and replicability of reports that used systematic efforts to improve quality, safety, and/or value of health professions’ education.
Three key components are emphasized in SQUIRE-EDU:
- Inclusion of a description of the local education gap
- Consideration of the impacts of educational improvement to patients, families, communities, and the health care system
- The fidelity of the iterations of the interventions
Congratulations to our current and past VAQS faculty and fellows who were a part of this incredible accomplishment!
