  On Demand  CE  Moving an Organization to a True Culture of Safety
In 1999, the Institute of Medicine released the report "To Err is Human" with the very startling statistic that between 44,000 to 98,000 Americans are injured or die as a result of medical malpractice every year. The report evolved because of the tragic events that occurred and drew much public attention and media recognition. The report also started the paradigm shift from risk management with a focus on the healthcare organization to patient safety with a focus on the patient. Positive patient outcomes have resulted from this paradigm shift. Proactive steps need to be implemented by these highly reliable organizations in order to actively identify opportunities for improvement.
Program Objectives:
  • Describe the paradigm shift of healthcare professionals from a focus on risk management to patient safety.
  • Explain the characteristics of a highly reliable organization and ways to move an organization to that level.
  • State the events that lead up to the Patient Safety Movement.
  • Specify methods and tools available for an organization to develop a strong patient safety program.
