Leadership Day: Business Case for Safety

 
   

Session Overview:

This Leadership Day Immersion Workshop is designed to provide current and aspiring leaders in health care, including executives and c-suite leaders, governance teams, patient safety and quality professionals, and clinicians, with an understanding of how to build a robust business case for safety when there are so many programs competing for internal resources and attention.  Our expert faculty will guide participants on how to successfully create and present your business case for safety with case examples and practical tools and resources.

 

Learning Objectives:

Upon completing this session, attendees will be able to:

  • Discuss how to position patient safety as an investment that drives value to your organization
  • Identify the key components that should be included in a strong business case for safety
  • Describe how to present your case to leadership including creating linkages to other organizational initiatives and key influencers

The Practice of Respect - Building a Culture of Respect for Patients, Families, and Health Care Professionals

     

Session Overview:

Despite our best efforts as care providers, adverse events happen far too often and the harm can go far beyond the patient that was directly impacted. Most efforts to respond to harm don’t actively improve patient safety or meet the needs of patients and providers. With the appropriate frameworks in place, adverse events can be turned into opportunities for improvement. Ensuring open communication after an adverse event, along with a comprehensive analysis of what happened with subsequent safety improvements, and providing emotional support for patients and providers is essential to practicing and instituting a culture of respect in any organization. In this full-day workshop health care leaders will learn how to effectively implement the knowledge, skills, and techniques that will instill a true culture of respect across the organization.

 

Learning Objectives:

Upon completing this session, attendees will be able to:

  • Discuss the central role that leadership engagement plays in successful  strategies for achieving a culture that promotes dignity and respect 
  • Describe a framework for capturing, assessing, categorizing and learning from emotional harms from disrespect
  • Discuss the role of Patient and Family Advisory Councils in building  a culture of respect

Application of Human Factors and Systems Safety Principles: Thinking Differently about Patient Safety

     

Session Overview:

Despite some considerable investment and some advances in patient safety, there are still hundreds of thousands of patients being harmed by medical error each year. A different way of thinking is required to ‘move the needle’ on patient safety. Human factors and systems safety focus on re-designing work as opposed to re-designing the human who does the work. Incorporating a human factors and systems safety approach allows for the development and integration of knowledge, skills and attitudes that facilitate successful performance at the front lines of care. This approach will help identify safe, sustainable and resilient solutions. At this workshop, healthcare leaders will learn how to apply human factors and systems safety concepts to understand true hazards in their organizations while fostering a culture of safety. The faculty includes human factors engineers, industrial/organizational psychologists, and healthcare safety leaders who have vast experience studying risk and implementing innovative change within healthcare organizations.

 

Learning Objectives:

Upon completing this session, attendees will be able to:

  • Describe the different components that are included in system (e.g.: people, organization, equipment) and how these interact to create safe/unsafe conditions.
  • Define the approach introduced by resilience engineering field (safety 1 vs safety 2) approaches, and describe how these concepts can be integrated into applied safety efforts.
  • Explain concepts of human performance and cognition and explain how these can be incorporated into designing safer care delivery systems.
  • Describe the benefits of giving healthcare providers usable technology and devices.
  • Identify usability issues in your healthcare environment and select usable technology and devices to mitigate these issues.
  • Describe the high-level concepts of teamwork, leadership and coordination and how they can be applied within clinical settings.
  • Recognize that even in the setting of optimized human performance, systems can be designed to support the way humans work, to minimize the opportunity for error, and to mitigate the impact of error once it occurs.
