There are 5 modules in this course

In this module, you will be introduced to a patient safety issue that will provide the basis for all of the work you will complete in this capstone course. After reviewing the incident, you will review content from the second course in the specialization regarding the use of the Learning from Defects Tool, and you will complete a first draft of a similar Learning from Defects template. Please note that each of the assessments in the first four weeks of this course are optional - this gives you the opportunity to develop first drafts of all of the documents you will submit for your capstone project, and receive valuable feedback on the work you have completed. In the last module of this course, you will resubmit final versions of the documents you have completed throughout the course. This final package of documents will comprise your entire grade for this capstone project course.
