ASHRM Academy offers exceptional educational experiences for professionals at every level. One of the five in-depth face-to-face programs being offered – The Patient Safety Certificate Program - designed to help healthcare risk management and patient safety professionals apply key patient safety concepts to support improved patient care and outcomes.
The Patient Safety Certificate was created for risk managers at all levels and is ideal for any professional interested in understanding the foundational concepts of patient safety and how to effectively apply them to effect positive change.
The Patient Safety Certificate Program consists of two sessions:
Patient Safety I: Set the Framework. Participants will be able to describe the evolution of patient safety, identify the characteristics of a Just Culture, and explain how human factors influence patient safety outcomes.
Patient Safety II: Take the Lead. Participants will be able to outline strategies to obtain actionable information from data mining efforts, professionally respond to staff reactions to adverse events, and examine the relationship between medication errors and technology.
Attendees may register for one or both sessions and those who complete both sessions will earn a Patient Safety Certificate. For more information, Click Here.
