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 UNTHSC IPS 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.

Frances Griffin, Registered Respiratory Therapist and independent consultant and faculty at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), will present Moving Towards High Reliability in Health Care at 1pm CT on Tuesday, December 5. What does it look like when a health care organization starts moving towards high reliability? In this session, characteristics of high reliability organizations will be discussed and the types of practical strategies that health care organizations can adopt to move towards these characteristics.
