The Preservation of Moralities for the Sake of Quality Care and Patient Safety – FREE Webinar Tuesday (Sept. 3) at 11am (sponsored by NNLM SCR and SaferCare Texas)

 

SaferCare Texas (formerly the UNTHSC Institute for Patient Safety) and the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, South Central Region housed at the Gibson D. Lewis Library would like to invite you to join us for the next session of our new webinar series.

This 1 hour series co-sponsored by NNLM SCR and SaferCare Texas will focus on topics related to the field of patient safety and health care quality. Through this series, we hope to empower health care professionals, patients, and health information professionals to support the elimination of preventable harm and achieve the highest quality in health care possible. Sessions will be scheduled quarterly and topics chosen based on current trends in patient care.

Dr. David Farmer, inaugural Director of the University of North Texas Health Science Center’s (UNTHSC) Department of Interprofessional Education and Practice (IPEP), and Cynthia Carroll, Assistant Director for the UNTHSC IPEP and an adjunct instructor in Medical Education with the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine, will present “The Preservation of Moralities for the Sake of Quality Care and Patient Safety” on Tuesday, September 3rd at 11am CT. Details on joining the meeting are available at the event link above. No registration is required, and the session is free to any interested parties. Please join us for this fabulous session!

Description: Providers enter the field of health care due to a calling and purpose greater than the self. Unfortunately, the demands of the healthcare system are frequently in contrast to the morals and values of the healthcare professionals within the system. This webinar will describe the conflict between systems and the people within. The presenters will discuss developing team cultures and skills in emotional intelligence and resilience as methods to alleviate environmental factors. The presenters will close the discussion with a request to address health professionals’ morality as it connects to quality.

Research Misconduct: Definitions, Causes, and Response Strategies – FREE Webinar Wednesday September 11 at 10am (Sponsored by the NNLM SCR)

 

The National Network of Libraries of Medicine, South Central Region housed at the Gibson D. Lewis Library would like to invite you to join us for the next session of our monthly webinar series.

This monthly 1 hour series will focus on topics of interest to clinicians, researchers, faculty, and information professionals.

Melody Herr, PhD, Head of the Office of Scholarly Communications at the University of Arkansas will present “Research Misconduct: Definitions, Causes, and Response Strategies” on Wednesday, September 11th at 10am CT. Details on joining the meeting are available at the event link above. No registration is required, and the session is free to any interested parties.

Description: Research misconduct, according to the National Academies, costs the nation several hundred million dollars every year. Yet the most significant cost is the loss of trust in researchers and their work. Both within the research community and across society, broken trust threatens the advancement of science. This webinar provides an overview of research misconduct – its definition, causes, and consequences – and empowers you to respond effectively if you suspect, detect, or face pressure to commit misconduct.

This webinar is for you.

Everyone who supports or participates in research shares responsibility for promoting integrity and addressing misconduct. This webinar targets library and information science (LIS) professionals and research administrators, but anyone involved in research is welcome to attend. You do not need any prior knowledge or experience.

You will gain a basic understanding of misconduct. An awareness of research misconduct will make you more attentive in your day-to-day work and more empathetic toward researchers in a stressful, competitive environment. At the same time, knowing effective strategies for responding to misconduct will empower you to become an agent of integrity.
