Target Audience:

This CME/CNE activity will be of interest to leaders in medicine, nursing and other healthcare disciplines, risk managers, underwriters, institutional lawyers, medical ethicists, and business managers. All specialties and disciplines are welcome to attend this program.

Overview:

Although many features distinguish a profession, one of the most important is responsibility for the conduct of its members. Unfortunately, leaders of the healthcare institutions often do not have training in or strategies for dealing with behaviors that undermine a culture of safety. Without the proper tools, healthcare professionals seemingly tolerate a certain amount of unsafe behavior in their institutions. Behaviors that undermine a culture of safety exhibited by healthcare professionals are first and foremost a threat to quality of care and patient safety, while also affecting staff morale and increasing cost burdens to the organization. This workshop will give leaders essential tools and strategies to address “unreasonable variation” in behavior and performance, providing a comprehensive plan adaptable
to all health care organizations. Furthermore, the methodology presented in this workshop is an essential component of a plan to address The Joint Commission’s July 2008 Alert entitled “Behaviors that undermine a culture
of safety.”
