Patient Safety Webinar Series

https://nnlm.gov/scr/professional-development/patient-safety-series

Guest Speaker: Jessica Maack Rangel, MS RN

Date: Tuesday, May 15th

Time: 1:00pm – 2:00pm CT / 12:00pm – 1:00pm MT

Co-Sponsored by: UNT Health Science Center, Institute for Patient Safety & National Network of Libraries of Medicine NIH>NLM>NNLM: The NNLM South Central Region aims to advance the progress of medicine and improve public health through increased access to health information within the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas.

Description: The healthcare industry has worked diligently to achieve improved and sustained patient safety outcomes; however, the impact of these efforts on improvement measures has been insufficient, especially when compared to high reliability organizations such as aviation and nuclear power industries. What’s the difference, and what can healthcare learn from these organizations? This session is designed to be a thought-provoking appeal to examine healthcare messaging and its impact on patient safety.  High reliability principles imbued with an interprofessional approach to communication design can make a difference. “Every system is perfectly designed to achieve the outcomes it gets.” Let’s tip the culture in a direction that drives safety.

Time: 1:00pm – 2:00pm CT / 12:00pm – 1:00pm MT
Description: Improved quality of care through patient safety is a priority of the American healthcare systems. Although most health care happens in community-based offices, patient safety research in these settings has been limited. SMT is a therapy delivered by several community-based healthcare professionals with over 50% of the American population receiving SMT sometime in their life. This webinar will present ongoing and past SMT patient safety research, including current opportunities for provider participation.
