Right Care Educator Program

Right Care Educator Program


The Lown Institute Right Care Educator Program

We are pleased to announce the Lown Institute is accepting applications for the Right Care Educator Program.

The Right Care Educator Program provides chief residents with training and support to implement Right Care Rounds in their home institutions. Right Care Rounds use the familiar format of a case presentation, incorporating evidence-based discussions that explore the drivers of medical overuse and promote appropriate, patient-focused care. Goals for Right Care Rounds include teaching clinicians to: recognize and avoid overuse; consider both clinical and social needs of patients; and identify opportunities to improve the quality of care. Right Care Rounds may also address barriers to accessing care, how to care for patients without strong social networks, and failures in patient safety.

In addition to web-based instruction for leading rounds and choosing cases, all participants will have the opportunity to engage in one-on-one mentoring from a health care leader. Over the years, we’ve had over 60 teams of chief residents from leading hospitals across the nation accepted into the program. Over 90% of surveyed chief residents indicated that Right Care Rounds uncovered opportunities for improving the quality of care; a third were able to implement changes at their institution to improve patient care as a result of Right Care Rounds within just half a year of the program launching.
