Make a Difference in Women's Health Patient Safety

SCOPE is a voluntary, comprehensive patient safety review program available to medical offices in which obstetric and gynecologic services are provided. 

SCOPE will benefit Fellows and their patients.
The goals of SCOPE are to assist Fellows in assessing the implementation and use of patient safety concepts and techniques in their offices and to recognize those offices with strong patient safety practices. SCOPE may identify office processes that require improvement, and ACOG will provide assistance and education to make changes and enhance patient safety.

Why is SCOPE important?

Lee Parsons, MD

Our group practice has been improving safety and quality with several projects over the last two decades. Due to the tyranny of the urgent needs of all the patients in front of us every day, we seemed to be stalled without moving forward. We knew that we should initiate procedural pauses (before office hysteroscopy/endometrial ablation) and performing some drills for potential emergencies.
