Are Your Implementations Effective – and Safe?
September 26, 2011, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
John R. (Skip) Valusek, PhD, CPHQ, Director Clinical Analytics, HealthEast Care System. A root cause of patient safety accidents and near misses is the distraction, inattention, and cognitive strain resulting from change fatigue. More specifically, healthcare organizations need to look at the impact of “uncontrolled change” on direct and indirect caregivers and ask the question: “Who is managing the simultaneous changes across all the change drivers?” This teleconference provides some insights into a simple yet effective solution to convert the current “avalanche” of change into a more proactive “snowfall” that will not only improve patient safety, but also increase caregiver engagement and increase the probability of success of your improvement efforts.
