Overview of Risk Management and Quality Management in Health Care Worksheet

The purpose of this assignment is to gain a broad perspective of risk management and quality management as applicable to all health care organizations, rather than focusing on a specific segment of the health care industry.

Conduct research on the health care disciplines of risk management and quality management and their roles in and influences on organizational performance.

Look for common themes and characteristics shared among the sources you used to conduct your research on the relationship of risk management and quality management to leadership and governance, philosophy and culture, and stakeholders. Use at least three research sources, with two from the University Library and one from the course textbooks or this week’s Electronic Reserve Readings. You may use as many additional resources as necessary to assist you in identifying factors. Provide citations for all sources consistent with APA guidelines.

Complete the grid by summarizing information in the Risk Management and Quality Management columns. Use bullet points of a few words or short phrases to describe each element. Use at least four bullet points for each item. This grid is not meant to be lengthy or all-inclusive; rather, it is a starting point on which you can build your knowledge of risk-management and quality-management concepts.
