We Have a Long Way to Go Yet on Patient Safety Says Gandhi, National Patient Safety Foundation
August 31, 2016, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Tejal Gandhi, President and CEO, National Patient Safety Foundation. In 1999 the Institute of Medicine published their seminal report “To Err is Human,” but more than fifteen years later, patient safety concerns remain a serious public health issue. In February 2015 the National Patient Safety Foundation convened an expert panel to assess the state of the patient safety field and set the stage for the next 15 years of work, leading to the publication in December 2015 of the well-received report “Free From Harm.” This engaging and informative session considers the eight recommendations of the “Free From Harm” report and how they can help accelerate the creation of total systems safety in all healthcare settings. This teleconference is part of the Clinical Decision Support Collaborative.
