Aurora Family Medicine Residency

Presentation Notes

Poster presented at: Society of Teachers of Family Medicine Annual Meeting; Minneapolis, MN; April 30-May 4, 2016.


Great variance existed between how test results were being communicated to patients in our residency clinics, decreasing patient satisfaction and posing a threat to patient safety. The purpose of this quality improvement study was to create a standard work flow for communicating both critical and normal test results to patients that will be used across our residency clinics by both residents and faculty, utilize our support staff to the top of licensing, and improve patient satisfaction, patient safety, and prevent clinical inertia.
