Bedside ultrasound training improves patient safety at UCLA
Both the technology and uses for ultrasound has expanded greatly in recent decades. The noninvasive technology allows visualization of internal structures without exposing a patient to radiation. On Sept. 12, UCLA Health System announced that it had received a $250,000 University of California grant to implement the bedside ultrasound training program. The two-year grant, “Impact on Quality and Safety of the Implementation of a Formal Curriculum for Bedside Ultrasound at UCLA,” will be led by Dr. Elizabeth Turner, UCLA director of bedside ultrasound in the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine.
