Quality improvement and patient safety have been shown to improve when physicians are engaged and committed to working within their institutional settings. However barriers may exist that either deter physicians from engagement or do not provide them with the necessary skills to do so. Health care organizations can and should remove barriers and develop systems to engage physicians in their quality improvement efforts, including team training for patient safety. Doing so requires an understanding of the most common barriers and developing strategies that address both institutional and physician concerns in a process that is beneficial for patients, physicians, and health care institutions.

Learning Objectives:

  • List the barriers to physician engagement
  • Describe literature-based strategies to improve physician engagement
  • Utilize methods that actively engage physicians in team training for patient safety

Speaker:

  • N. Kevin Krane, MD, FACP, FASN
    Vice Dean for Academic Affairs, Professor of Medicine, Director of Team Training, Tulane University School of Medicine

BONUS SPONSORED WEBINAR!

Thursday, June 20 at 1:00 pm ET (12:00 pm CT, 11:00 am MT, 10:00 am PT)

The need to create a culture of high reliability within health care is not only long overdue, but it encompasses all elements to help organizations hone in on key drivers to effectively improve patient safety. Variations in the competency, quality, and adoption of evidence-based medicine among your clinical teams are a core driver of your adverse events and claims. With nurses spending more one-on-one time with patients than any other healthcare worker, this makes the need for their ability to perform at the highest level essential to providing safe patient care.

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain insight into key drivers associated with variation in care amongst clinical teams
  • The evolution of the patient/safety movement
  • Refresh initiatives in building a culture of high reliability within your organization to improve patient care
  • Learn how to successfully implement change initiatives for mitigating clinical risk
  • Understand the challenging landscape and where we are today

Speakers:

  • Lora Sparkman, MHA, BSN, RN
    Partner, Clinical Solutions, Patient Safety & Quality, Relias
  • John Harrington, CMI
    Vice President, Solutions, Relias

The nation’s adult population over age 65 is projected to reach 83.7 million by the year 2050, an increase from 21% of the population in 2012 to more than 39% in 2050. Age-Friendly health systems is an initiative of The John A. Hartford Foundation and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement in partnership with the American Hospital Association and the Catholic Health Association of the United States. The initiative is designed to meet the needs of older adults, looking beyond acute events, engaging the whole community, and achieving better health for older adults. By focusing on four key areas — what matters, medications, mobility and mentation — we aim to improve patient care, safety and outcomes; and reduce length of stay and readmissions. Join this webinar to learn about the importance and impact of the 4Ms Framework, hear bright spots in the field integrating value-based, Age-Friendly care and understand the benefits of joining the Action Community.

Learning Objectives:

  • Assess the need for health systems to become age-friendly
  • Learn about the Age-Friendly Health Systems movement and how the 4Ms Framework (what matters, medications, mobility, and mentation) can be applied to a care setting
  • Review the progress and challenges of the initiative at a site and hear about how your organization can become involved

Speaker:

  • Marie Cleary-Fishman
    Vice President of Clinical Quality, HRET/American Hospital Association
