The purpose

The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of two methods, safety curriculum in addition to online training alone, for teaching patient safety to surgery residents. Despite multiple studies evaluating educational safety curricula, the best methods for teaching residents about patient safety is unknown. It is hypothesized that empowering surgery residents to actively engage in behaviors to increase patient safety may lead to a higher quality perioperative care and communication.
