The Collaborative for Accountability and Improvement and the National Patient Safety Foundation will sponsor a Feb. 18-19 retreat for health care leaders on how to establish an effective communication and resolution program for adverse events. Among other initiatives, the event will highlight the CANDOR project (Communication and Optimal Resolution), an Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality-funded project led by the AHA’s Health Research & Educational Trust that developed a way to improve how hospitals respond to adverse events or unexpected outcomes, with a heavy focus on transparency in communication with the patient and their families.
